TO

Whose  Words  of  Encouragement  and  Aid  Strengthened  my 

Hands  through  Many  Hours  of  Labor  and

PREFACE. 

The  compiler  of  the  Brown,  and  the  Nathaniel  Babcock  and  Main 
Genealogies,  by  request  was  persuaded  to  do  some  supplementary  work , 
and  this  is  the  apology  for  sending  out  to  the  public  my  third  Genealogy. 
I  have  in  the  last  half  of  this  book  compiled  the  records  of  Charles  Browne, 
whose  name  first  appeared  in  Rowley,  Mass.,  at  the  time  of  his  mar- 
riage, in  1647.  At  the  instance  of  Alexander  T.  Brown,  of  Syracuse,  N.  Y., 
who  said  that  his  great-grandmother  on  the  other  side  was  a  Brown,  and 
when  an  opportunity  afforded  he  would  like  to  have  me  look  up  her 
records,  I,  after  long  and  diligent  search,  found  that  her  progenitor  was 
Charles  Browne.  Hence  many  of  the  numerous  descendants  follow,  in 
the  second  part  of  this  volume. 

From  my  past  experience,  I  do  not  anticipate  the  sale  of  the  third 
Genealogy  will  compensate  for  all  the  outlay  of  time,  labor,  and  money 
spent  in  its  production;  but  the  satisfaction  derived  in  doing  the  work  is  a 
partial  compensation,  and  that  the  book  will  commend  itself  to  posterity 
and  prove  useful  when  all  who  are  now  living  have  passed  away  is  the 
author's  firm  belief.  It  is  difficult  for  the  compiler  to  enumerate  the  ob- 
stacles he  has  had  to  encounter  in  getting  the  annals  of  the  Browns  into 
their  present  shape,  and  he  must  crave  the  indulgence  of  his  readers  for 
errors  and  omissions,  chargeable  in  part  to  imperfect  reports  received. 

At  the  same  time,  it  should  be  stated,  there  are  those  who  have  taken 
hearty  interest  and  worked  right  royally  to  have  their  families  placed  with 
proper  fulness  and  accuracy  in  this  volume.  Many  of  them  are  persons 
who  have  come  into  the  family  by  marriage,  and  by  their  faithful,  pains- 
taking endeavors  have  proved  their  appreciation  of  the  name  and  their 
desire  to  perpetuate  its  history.  In  pursuit  of  the  required  information 
for  my  work  in  this  volume,  I  have  sent  out  hundreds  of  circulars  and 
letters,  and  have  received  several  hundred  in  reply.  Many  cities,  towns, 
records,  and  burying-grounds  have  been  visited  and  consulted;  old 
Bibles  containing  family  records  sought  out,  and  their  treasures  of  gene- 
alogy rescued  from  oblivion;  the  memories  of  aged  people  have  been 
brought  into  requisition,  and  valuable  information,  which  but  for  this 
effort  would  have  perished  with  the  lives  of  those  from  whom  it  was 
obtained,  has  been  put  upon  the  printed  page  to  be  handed  down  to 


PREFACE 

posterity.  It  has  been  passing  strange  that  many  aged  people  have 
thought  that  the  knowledge  they  had  of  their  ancestry  was  all-sufficient, 
forgetting  that  unless  it  was  transcribed  to  the  printed  page  it  would 
sink  into  oblivion.  "Wouldst  thou  trust  thy  name  to  dumb  forgetful- 
ness,  or  to  the  decaying  graveyard  stone?  Nay,  rather  place  it  on  the 
pages  of  history,  in  the  printed  book." 

Nearly  all  the  Browns  have  moved  in  the  middle  walks  of  life  —  not 
so  elevated  as  to  be  dazed  by  splendor,  or  so  poor  as  to  suffer  want. 
Very  many,  it  will  be  seen,  have  been  Christian  ministers,  and  a  very 
large  proportion  connected  with  churches  as  members  or  church  officers. 

The  writer  sends  out  this  volume  to  the  public  as  it  is,  hoping  those 
who  have  the  curiosity  to  examine  its  pages  will  do  so  in  a  spirit  of  candor, 
and  with  an  appreciative  sense  of  the  impossibility  of  putting  in  a  form 
entirely  correct  records  which  run  back  for  a  period  of  two  hundred  and 
fifty  years  and  more.  Effort  has  been  made  to  give  all  families  an  oppor- 
tunity to  be  heard  from  and  represented.  Some  few  are  not  interested; 
while,  on  the  other  hand,  others  are  glad  such  a  work  is  being  compiled, 
and  have  cheerfully  sent  records,  written  letters  to  others,  and  helped 
to  make  the  work  of  use  to  as  many  of  the  kin  as  possible.  The  list  is 
too  long  to  mention  by  name  all  whose  kindness  and  expressed  good 
wishes  the  author  deeply  appreciates  and  will  ever  hold  in  precious  and 
tender  remembrance.  Most  hearty  thanks  are  now  tendered  to  my 
friends  and  kindred  whose  words  of  encouragement  from  time  to  time 
have  placed  me  under  obligations  to  them.  After  fourteen  years  of  con- 
tinuous genealogical  work  I  lay  down  my  pen,  hoping  some  future  his- 
torian will  continue  this  work.  The  free  use  of  my  genealogies  to  any 
such  is  freely  granted.

Let  us  gather  up  the  traditions  that  still  exist;  let  us  show  the  world  that, 
if  we  are  not  called  to  follow  the  example  of  our  fathers,  we  are  not  at  least 
insensible  to  the  worth  of  their  characters;  not  indifferent  to  the  sacrifices  ami 
trials  by  which  they  purchased  our  prosperity. 

— Edward  Everett. 


INTRODUCTION. 

It  is  with  a  pleasant  feeling  of  accomplishment  that  I  write  this  in- 
troduction to  my  third  volume  of  genealogical  work.  It  is  justified  by 
the  success  with  which  my  previous  genealogies  have  been  received.  I 
have  been  favored  with  that  leisure  which  has  blessed  the  decline  of  my 
life  in  writing  Family  History,  which  connects  family  with  family,  from 
the  least  to  the  greatest,  as  if  the  hand  of  direction  was  again  upon  the 
curtain  to  give  old  scenes  new  lights. 

The  first  section  contains  records  of  Nicholas  Browne  and  his  son 
Thomas,  who  settled  in  Lynn,  Mass.,  in  1630.  I  take  as  the  basis  of  this 
genealogy,  as  in  my  Brown  Book,  the  three  sons  of  Thomas  Brown  and 
Mary  Newhall;  viz.,  Thomas,  John,  and  Eleazer  Brown,  who  came  to 
Stonington,  Conn.,  about  1680,  taking  fifty-three  numbers  in  regular 
order  as  given  in  my  first  volume.  A  large  number  of  new  families  have 
been  found  and  connected  to  the  parent  tree,  giving  impetus  to  this 
second  effort  by  the  urgent  request  of  many  relatives. 

The  second  section  takes  up  Charles  Browne  and  his  descendants,  who 
settled  in  Rowley,  Mass.,  in  1647,  and  who  doubtless  came  with  the 
early  pioneers  from  1630  to  1635.  In  this  second  section  I  am  indebted 
to  the  Spicer  Genealogy  for  the  origin  of  this  family,  and  to  Miss  Ellen  L. 
Brown,  of  Greenfield,  Mass.,  who  has  labored  untiringly  to  bring  forth 
her  ancestry;  otherwise  many  of  these  now  a  long  time  passed  on  would 
have  been  unhonored  and  unsung. 

One  of  the  most  useful  faculties  of  the  mind  is  memory;  and  history 
enables  us  to  treasure  up  the  memories  of  those  who  have  lived  before 
us.  What  a  painful  want  should  we  suffer  were  the  history  of  our  fathers 
a  blank,  and  we  could  know  no  more  of  them  than  of  the  aborigines! 
Our  existence  might  indeed  be  regarded  as  incomplete  if  we  could  not 
command  the  record  of  past  time,  as  well  as  enjoy  the  present,  and  hope 
for  the  happiness  of  the  future.  When  you  see  the  names  of  your  ances- 
tors on  the  printed  page  it  is  hoped  you  will  be  aroused  to  know  more 
of  them. 

In  the  gathering  of  material  here  sheathed  and  bound  there  has  been 
much  brought  out  from  the  by-ways  of  life  unknown  to  many  members  of 
these  families,  and  thought  worth  while  to  give  publication.  My  effort 
has  been  throughout  this  research  to  bind  the  branches  to  the  parent

tree,  and  where  a  family  appeared  that  could  not  be  so  connected  it  was 
rejected.  The  work  is  not  complete,  and  it  could  be  continued  through 
a  long  lifetime  and  then  be  incomplete;  but  I  pass  it  on  to  succeeding 
generations.  There  were  many  Browns  among  the  earlier  generations  of 
whom  nothing  more  will  be  known,  save  name  and  birth  at  a  certain 
date.  This  volume  is  intended  to  form  a  connected  whole  with  the  vol- 
ume published  in  1907. 

I  cannot  let  this  opportunity  pass  without  expressing  my  sincere 
obligations  to  all  those  who  have  in  any  way  contributed  information 
which  has  aided  me  again  to  bring  a  new  edition  of  my  work  before  the 
public.  Yet  there  are  hundreds  that  have  wrought  royally  that  I  cannot 
mention.  First,  this  publication  was  made  possible  by  the  generous 
assistance  of  Alexander  T.  Brown,  of  Syracuse,  N.  Y.,  and  Dr.  Charles 
W.  Brown,  Washington,  D.  C,  who  sent  me  the  data  of  his  great-grand- 
father, Thomas  Brown  (47),  of  eight  hundred  names.  Abel  Prentice 
Brown,  of  Amherst,  Mass.,  sent  me  the  connecting  link  to  Samuel 
Brown  (52)  in  the  same  family.  There  are  scores  that  have  given  their 
assistance  to  make  this  compilation  a  success,  many  of  whom  will  find 
credit  under  their  name  and  record. 

Having  a  natural  love  for  this  work  to  commemorate  the  acts  and 
deeds  of  the  fathers  and  mothers  long  passed  away,  this  supplementary 
work  is  compiled  as  a  monument  to  their  memory.  "Truth  is  of  far  greater 
importance  to  life  than  art  can  ever  be." 

A  genealogist  can  never  be  successful  "who  be  af eared  of  hard  work" — 
"neither  should  he  have  a  lying  tongue  or  a  bad  memory." 

Covet  nothing  that  is  your  neighbor's  except  his  kindness  of  heart 
and  gentleness  of  manners. —  Henry  van  Dyke. 

Note. —  The  compiler  spent  much  valuable  time  in  research  to  establish  whether 
Nicholas  Browne  was  the  father  of  Thomas  Browne,  of  Lynn.  He  found  much  about 
Nicholas  Browne,  and  had  written  it  out  in  full,  only  finally  to  come  to  the  conclusion 
that  he  was  not  the  father  of  Thomas.  Other  historians  of  recent  date  are  of  the  same 
opinion;  although  I  had  so  stated  in  my  first  volume,  which  I  here  positively  contradict. 

At  a  good  deal  of  trouble  and  expense  I  got  a  copy  of  the  will  of  Nicholas  Browne 
(which  is  kept  in  East  Cambridge,  Mass.)  to  publish  here,  and  found  that  Thomas 
Browne  was  not  mentioned,  while  his  children  by  his  wife  Elizabeth  were  all  particu- 
larly mentioned.  Thomas  is  not  referred  to  in  any  probate  of  Nicholas;  nor  can  I  as 
yet  get  any  note  referring  to  any  gift  from  Nicholas  of  rights  in  Lynn. 

Mary,  the  wife  of  Thomas  Browne  in  1701  [record  vol.  IV,  p.  93],  was  alive,  in 
Stonington,  when  she,  with  her  son  Thomas,  Jr.  (2),  sold  rights  to  his  brother  Daniel. 

Thomas  was  of  the  right  age  to  be  a  son  of  Nicholas,  but  the  proof  is  lacking  that 
he  had  any  link  to  Thomas  Browne  referred  to  as  dish-turner  and  constable  of  Lynn.

THOMAS,  JOHN,  and  ELEAZER  BROWN 

Sons  or  Thomas  and   Mary  (Newhall)   Brown 
of  Lynn,   Mass. 


1628-1915 


The  Brown  Genealogy. 

Thomas  Browne,  b.  about  1628;  m.  Mary  Newhall,  b.  June,  1637; 
dau.  of  Thomas  Newhall,  of  Lynn.  He  continued  in  Lynn,  which  was 
one  of  the  earliest  towns  planted  in  Massachusetts.  Plymouth  was 
planted  in  1620.  The  settlement  of  Lynn  was  begun  in  1629;  it  then  had 
five  families,  and  by  them  in  this  wilderness  the  soil  was  first  stirred  by 
the  white  man;  there,  surrounded  by  Indians,  they  laid  the  foundation 
of  the  town.  These  settlers  are  supposed  to  have  come  from  Salem,  and 
their  number  was  greatly  augmented  in  1630,  at  the  time  of  the  arrival 
of  Winthrop  and  his  company.  The  great  body  of  fifty  persons,  with 
their  families,  who  came  to  Lynn  this  year  settled  in  all  parts  of  the  town, 
selecting  the  most  eligible  portions,  and  each  occupying  from  ten  to  two 
hundred  acres;  some  occupied  more.  They  were  principally  farmers  and 
possessed  a  large  stock  of  horned  cattle,  sheep,  and  goats.  For  several 
years,  before  the  land  was  divided  and  the  fields  fenced,  the  cattle  were 
fed  in  one  drove,  and  guarded  by  a  man  who,  from  his  employment, 
was  called  a  hayward.  The  sheep,  goats,  and  swine  were  kept  on  Nahant, 
where  they  were  tended  by  a  shepherd.  A  fence  of  rails,  put  near  to- 
gether, was  made  across  the  beach  near  Nahant,  to  keep  out  the  wolves, 
as  those  animals  do  not  climb.  When  the  people  were  building  this  fence 
Captain  Turner  said,  "Let  us  make  haste,  lest  the  country  should  take 
it  from  us."    [Deposition  in  Salem  Court  Records,  April  22,  1657.] 

The  people  of  Lynn,  for  some  years,  appear  to  have  lived  in  the  most 
perfect  democracy.  They  had  town  meetings  every  three  months,  for 
the  regulation  of  their  public  affairs.  Later  on,  by  Eaton,  is  found  this 
record:  "Nicholas  Browne,  Edward  Taylor  and  others  were  fined  6d. 
each  for  being  late  at  town  meeting."  They  cut  their  wood  in  common, 
and  drew  lots  for  the  grass  in  the  meadows  and  marshes.  There  are  hun- 
dreds of  acres  of  marshlands,  and  these  proved  very  serviceable  to  the 
farmers,  by  furnishing  them  with  sustenance  for  their  cattle,  which  was 
probably  the  reason  why  there  were  more  farmers  in  Lynn  than  in  any 
other  of  the  early  settlements.  Mr.  Johnson  says,  "The  chiefest  corn 
they  planted,  before  they  had  plows,  was  Indian  grain, —  and  let  no  man 
make  a  jest  at  Pumkins,  for  with  this  food  the  Lord  was  pleased  to  feed 
his  people  to  their  good  content,  till  Corne  and  Cattell  were  increased." 

1 1 


THE  BROWN  GENEALOGY 

Their  corn  at  the  first  was  pounded,  after  the  manner  of  the  Indians, 
with  a  pestle  of  wood  or  stone,  in  a  mortar  made  either  of  wood  or  stone, 
or  a  log  hollowed  out  at  one  end.  They  raised  a  considerable  quantity  of 
flax. 

Their  first  houses  were  rude  structures,  covered  with  thatch.  A  com- 
mon form  of  the  early  cottages  was  eighteen  feet  square,  with  seven-foot 
posts,  and  the  roof  steep  enough  to  form  a  sleeping-chamber.  The  better 
houses  were  built  with  two  stories  in  front,  sloping  down  to  one  in  the 
rear.  The  frames  were  of  heavy  oak  timber,  showing  the  posts  and  beams 
inside.  Burnt  clam  shells  were  used  for  lime,  and  the  walls  were  white- 
washed. The  fireplaces  were  made  of  rough  stones,  and  the  chimneys  of 
boards,  plastered  inside  with  clay.  The  fireplaces  were  large  enough  to 
admit  a  four-foot  log,  and  the  children  might  sit  in  the  corners  and  look 
up  at  the  stars.  On  whichever  side  of  the  road  the  houses  were  placed, 
they  uniformly  faced  the  south,  that  the  sun  at  noon  might "  shine  square. ' ' 
Thus  each  house  formed  a  domestic  sun-dial,  by  which  the  good  matron, 
in  the  absence  of  a  clock,  could  tell  in  fair  weather  when  to  call  her 
husband  and  sons  from  the  field. — Lewis,  "History  of  Lynn,"  pp.  6g 
and  70. 

As  before  stated,  Thomas  Browne  remained  in  Lynn,  and  married 
Mary  Newhall. 

The  Newhall  family  was  prominent  among  the  early  settlers  of  Lynn, 
and  came  with  Winthrop  and  company  in  1630. 

Thomas  Newhall,  who  came  from  England  and  landed  at  Salem  with 
his  brother  Anthony,  settled  in  Lynn  soon  after.  Thomas  was  a  farmer 
and  owned  all  the  lands  on  the  eastern  side  of  Federal  Street,  as  far  north 
as  Marion.  His  house  stood  on  the  east  side  of  the  former  street,  south 
of  where  the  brook  crosses.  In  the  division  of  lands  in  Lynn  in  1630  he 
received  thirty  acres.  His  was  one  of  the  fifty  families  in  Lynn  in  1630, 
there  being  but  five  in  1629. 

Thomas  Newhall  is  known  to  have  had  the  following  children: 

I.  Susannah  Newhall,  b.,  England,  about  1624;  m.  Richard 
Haven  and  had  twelve  children.  Several  of  his  sons  were 
among  the  first  settlers  in  Framingham,  Mass. 

Note. —  A  great  family  gathering  of  the  descendants  of  this  Lynn  settler  was  held 
in  Framingham,  a  number  of  years  since,  at  which  some  fifteen  hundred  were  present. 
Many  eminent  persons  appear  in  the  family  line. 

II.  John  Newhall,  b.  England;  m.  (1)  Elizabeth  Laighton;  m.  (2) 
Sarah  Flanders.

THE  BROWN  GENEALOGY 

III.  Thomas  Newhall,  b.  about  1630.    The  most  notable  circum- 

stance regarding  this  individual  is  that  he  was  the  first  white 
child  born  in  Lynn.  He  m.,  Dec.  29,  1652,  at  the  age  of 
twenty-two,  Elizabeth  Potter.  There  were  ten  children. 
Thomas  Newhall  d.  Mar.,  1687,  his  wife  having  d.  a 
few  weeks  before.  She  was  buried  Feb.  22,  1687.  For  many 
years  the  Newhall  family  were  very  numerous  in  Lynn  and 
elsewhere,  and  are  even  at  the  present  time.  Thomas 
Newhall,  aged  fifty- seven,  the  first  white  person  born  in 
Lynn,  was  buried  in  the  old  burying-ground,  near  the  west 
end  of  Lynn  Common,  Apr.  1,  1687. 

IV.  Mary  Newhall,  b.  about  1637;  m.  Thomas  Browne,  b.  about 

1628.  He  d.  Aug.  28, 1683.  Her  name  first  appears  in  records 
as  wife  of  Thomas  Browne  in  1658.  His  widow,  Mary,  was 
appointed  administratrix,  Oct.  9,  1683,  on  the  same  day 
the  non-cupative  will  of  Thomas  Browne  was  taken  down 
[on  file  in  the  office  of  the  Register  of  Probate  in  Salem]. 
He  names  his  eldest  son,  Thomas,  and  his  sons  Joseph, 
John,  Daniel,  and  Ebenezer,  and  dau.  Mary,  who  m. 
Thomas  Norwood. 

In  this  connection  is  given  the  will  of  Thomas  Newhall,  Sr.,  who  m. 
Mary .  She  d.  Sept.  25,  1665.  He  lived  until  May  25,  1674. 

The  Last  Will  and  Testament  of  Thomas  Newhall,  signed  1st  April, 
1668,  was  received  in  court  30  ,  4m,  1674.  Some  of  his  bequests  are  as 
follows: 

"I  bequeath  my  twelve  acres  of  salt  marsh  to  my  son  Thomas  Newhall 
and  my  son  John  Newhall,  the  six  acres  that  my  son  Tho:  shall  have,  is

But  as  the  document  was  executed  just  before  his  death,  it  is  reason- 
able to  conclude  that  infirmity,  rather  than  ignorance,  was  the  occasion 
of  his  signing  in  that  suspicious  manner.  A  facsimile  of  his  signature  is 
preserved  in  the  records  of  Lynn. 

His  estate  appraized  25  ,  4m0,  '74,  by  Oliver  Purchas  and  Robert

'  'T  is  good  sometimes  to  travel  back 

To  days  of  '  auld  lang  syne; ' 
Retrace  the  ancient  fathers'  track 

Along  the  mossy  line; 
Visit  the  old  ancestral  homes, 

Our  parents'  virtues  learn, 
And  round  their  monumental  stones 

Let  veneration  burn ; 
Review  the  trials  that  they  bore 

In  old,  primeval  years, 
To  gain  this  fair  and  goodly  shore, 

Mid  toil  and  want  and  fears; 
Observe  their  efforts  here  to  raise 

The  standard  of  the  Cross, 
Where  they  might  preach  and  pray  and  praise, 

No  prelates  to  oppress. 
And  how,  in  after-times,  they  grew 

The  tree  of  liberty, 
And  from  its  topmost  branches  threw 

The  flag  of  victory; 
That  same  bright  flag,  whose  starry  fold 

Their  loyal  sons  admire. 
And,  spite  of  traitors,  will  uphold 

With  sword  and  blood  and  fire."

THE  BROWN  GENEALOGY 

In  this  Genealogy,  as  in  my  former  treatises,  I  have  taken  up  the  three 
sons  of  Thomas  Brown,  Sr.,  and  Mary  Newhall,  his  wife;  viz.,  Thomas, 
Jr.  (2),  John  (8),  and  Eleazer  Brown  (11),  who  came  to  Stonington, 
Conn.,  where  they  purchased  large  tracts  of  land  and  made  themselves 
permanent  homes,  where  they  had  large  families.  Most  of  this  tract  of 
land  is  within  the  limits  of  the  present  town  of  No.  Stonington,  bounded 
as  follows:  the  western  boundary  was  nearly  all  on  Ossekonk  Swamp;  the 
northern  boundary  extended  from  the  Ossekonk  Brook  on  the  west  to 
Shunock  River,  and  still  east  of  said  river,  for  Eleazer  (11)  built  his 
house  half  a  mile  from  the  river,  and  this  easterly  part  of  their  possessions 
is  where  is  found  the  most  productive  land.  Their  northern  boundary 
joined  the  lands  of  the  late  Stephen  Avery  and  lands  of  the  Main  family, 
to  lands  of  the  Randall  family;  easterly  on  the  Randall  land  to  the  Rich- 
ardson's possessions;  on  the  south  by  the  Palmer  family  land  and  Miner 
territory;  and  on  the  west  by  the  Wheeler  family  land  up  to  the  said 
Ossekonk  Swamp.  The  Main  family  mentioned  was  Ezekiel  Main,  who 
came  from  Scituate,  Mass.,  in  1669  and  took  up  large  tracts  of  land  as 
described  in  my  treatises  in  my  Main  Genealogy. 

On  the  above  tract  of  land  described  is  one  of  the  oldest  burying- 
grounds  in  the  town,  on  the  south  of  the  cedar  swamp  from  which  this 
burying-ground  takes  its  name.  Long  before  the  Providence  and  New 
London  turnpike  was  built  a  road  passed  by  this  ancient  burying-place, 
but  after  the  turnpike  was  constructed  this  road  was  discontinued, 
making  it  one  of  the  most  secluded  places  that  can  be  found  on  the 
whole  tract  of  land  to  bury  the  dead.  No  interments  have  been  made 
here  for  many  years.  Here,  without  headstones,  are  interred  many  of 
the  early  settlers,  and  without  doubt  two  of  the  pioneers, —  Thomas  (2) 
and  John  (8), —  but  no  headstones  mark  their  last  resting-place.  The 
first  marked  headstones  were  placed  in  these  grounds  one  hundred  and 
two  years  after  the  death  of  Thomas  (2).  They  are  placed  at  the 
Ichabod  Brown  family.  At  the  grave  of  Roswell  Brown,  the  great- 
grandfather of  the  compiler,  are  marble  engraved  stones;  Thatcher,  his 
brother,  also  has  engraved  stones.  Jedediah  Brown  and  his  three  wives 
have  engraved  stones;  and  this  is  all,  among  fifty  or  more  graves. 
Thomas  Brown  (22),  whose  house  and  farm  were  only  about  a  mile 
away,  and  his  son  Samuel,  who  owned  the  same  house  and  lands  of  his 
lather,  doubtless  are  buried  here.  Abel  Prentice  Brown,  of  Amherst, 
Mass.,  now  living,  harks  back  to  Samuel  as  his  great-grandfather.  The 
remains  of  many  have  been  removed  to  Union  Cemetery,  and  to  Elm 
Grove  Cemetery,  Mystic,  Conn.

of  Lynn;  b.,  Lynn,  about  Jan.  1,  1654;  d.,  Stonington,  Conn.,  Dec.  27, 
1723;  interred  at  the  Cedar  Swamp  Burying-ground,  and  probably  was 
among  the  first  buried  there.  The  grave  is  unmarked.  He  m.,  Feb.  8, 
1677,  Hannah  Collins,  of  Lynn;  dau.  of  John  Collins,  of  Lynn.  He  built 
his  house  about  forty  rods  west  of  what  was  afterwards  known  as  the 
"Pond  Place"  house  on  the  Anguilla  Road,  and  about  thirty  rods  west 
of  this  road.  The  cellar  is  filled  six  feet  above  the  ground  with  stones, 
and  down  the  hill  is  a  fine  living  spring  of  water,  making  a  natural  place 
for  a  pioneer  to  build  his  house.  His  ten  children  without  doubt  were 
born  here.

Brown  Cemetery,  and  north  of  the  Miner  Meeting-house.  Headstones 
were  erected  to  their  graves  by  the  late  Daniel  Brown.  Probably  these 
were  the  first  interments  in  these  grounds.  He  was  a  farmer  and  stock- 
raiser.  [For  his  will,  see  Appendix.]  — Pendleton  Genealogy,  by  Everett  H.

Stonington,  in  the  part  of  that  township  which  was  afterward  set  off  to

The  following  Deed  of  Land,  purchased  by  Thomas  Browne,  Jr.  (2), 
joined  his  home  land  on  the  south.  He  may  have  deeded  it  to  his  son 
Thomas  (22),  as  he  deeded  another  tract  of  land,  east,  to  his  son  Daniel 
(24),  which  was  "witnessed  and  signed  and  sealed  the  twenty-fifth  of 
January,  One  Thousand  Seven  Hundred  twenty  one-two,  in  ye  Seventh 
year  of  his  Majestie's  Reign  —  George  King  of  Great  Britain. ' '  At  any 
rate,  on  this  newly  acquired  land  Thomas  Brown  (22)  built  his  house, 
and  his  successor  was  his  son  Samuel  (52),  and  here  were  born  his  chil- 
dren. Samuel  Brown  in  this  connection  follows,  and  he  gives  to  his 
youngest  son,  Prentice  Brown,  by  will,  this  same  homestead.  From 
Prentice  this  estate  came  to  his  adopted  dau.,  who  m.  Cogswell  T.

descent.  It  is  now  [1914]  owned  by  the  heirs  of  the  late  Hermon  C. 
Brown.  The  house  itself,  doubtless  built  by  Thomas  Bfown  (22),  which 
has  been  the  home  for  succeeding  generations  of  those  above  mentioned, 
has  passed  out  of  existence.

the  early  home  of  this  family  in  primeval  days,  her  father  being  the  first 
to  stir  the  soil  in  this  then  wilderness  of  Stonington,  now  No.  Stonington, 
and  awake  the  echoes  with  his  axe  in  this  primitive  forest.  This  takes  us 
back  to  the  beginners  of  this  oldest  family  of  the  Browns  in  Stonington. 
Mary  Brown  m.,  Stonington,  Jan.  9,  1704,  Thomas  York,  son  of  James 
York,  Jr.  Wheeler's  "History  of  Stonington"  says  of  the  York  family, 
p.  695: 

"June  20,  1635, there  embarked  on  board  the  good  ship  Philip,  Richard 
Morgan,  master,  forty-two  passengers,  who  were  to  be  transported  from 
England  to  Virginia,  in  America.  They  had  been  previously  examined 
by  the  minister  of  Gravesend  as  to  their  conformity  to  the  orders  and 
discipline  of  the  Church  of  England,  and  had  taken  the  oath  of  allegiance. 

"James  York,  Sr.,  was  one  of  the  passengers  of  the  good  ship  Philip  in 
1635,  rated  therein  at  the  age  of  21  years,  consequently  he  was  born  in 
the  year  1614.  It  is  not  known  at  what  place  in  Virginia  Capt.  Morgan 
landed  his  passengers,  or  whether  he  landed  them  in  that  colony  at  all. 
If  they  were  landed  there,  our  James  York  did  not  remain  there  long. 
He  doubtless  soon  after  his  arrival  in  this  country,  came  north,  whether 
by  land  or  water  we  do  not  know,  but  the  first  record  we  have  of  him  is 
in  Braintree,  Mass. 

"James  York,  Sr.,  came  to  Stonington,  Conn.,  in  the  year  1660,  when 
this  town  was  under  the  jurisdiction  of  Massachusetts,  and  called  by 
the  name  of  Southertown,  and  settled  on  grants  of  land  which  then  in- 
cluded the  present  farm  of  Gideon  P.  Chesebrough,  east  of  Anguilla,  or 
Wequetequock  brook,  also  the  farm  of  Erastus  D.  Miner  and  the  Simon 
Rhodes  place,  and  there  he  built,  him  a  dwelling  house  on  the  north  side 
of  the  then  Indian  path, —  now  known  as  the  old  Post  road, — ■  where 
he  lived  the  remainder  of  his  life,  dying  in  1683,  aged  sixty-nine  years. 
His  widow  died  in  1685. 

"James  York,  Sr.,  m.  Joannah  -  -;  the  family  name  of  his  wife  is 
not  known,  neither  the  place  of  their  marriage;  but  the  date  thereof 
must  have  been  about  1637.  Two  children  are  mentioned,  Abigail,  b. 
about  1638-9,  who  m.  John  Beebe,  of  New  London,  and  James  York,  Jr. 

"James  York,  Jr.,  b.  June  14,  1648.  He  doubtless  came  to  Stonington, 
Conn.,  with  his  father,  when  under  age,  for  his  name  is  mentioned  in  the 
town  records  several  times  before  the  date  1672,  when  Savage  says,  'He 
sold  his  estate  in  Boston,  Mass.,  where  he  was  engaged  in  business,  and 
came  to  Stonington,'  for  on  the  Stonington  town  records,  under  date  of 
Jan.  15,  1667,  '100  acres  of  land  layed  out  to  James  York,  Jr.,'  and  he 
was  also  one  of  the  men  who  received  land  grants  for  service  in  Indian

1676,  and  his  widow  m.  for  her  second  husband,  Mar.  12,  1679,  Henry- 
Elliot.  James  York,  Jr.,  m.,  Stonington,  Conn.,  Jan.  19,  1669,  Deborah 
Bell,  dau.  of  Thomas  and  Anna  Bell.  Through  the  wife  of  James  York, 
Jr.,  Deborah  Bell,  we  get  the  name  Bell  that  so  frequently  occurs  in  the 
York  lineage." 

Children  of  James  York,  Jr.,  and  Deborah  Bell: 

56.  Deborah  Bell  York,  b.  Jan.  8,  1670;  d.  Feb.  21,  1672.

ton [Thomas  (2),  Thomas],  b.,  Westerly,  R.  I.,  Jan.  3,  1718-19,  and  d. 
about  1809,  probably  at  Deer  Island,  N.  B.,  while  on  a  visit  to  his  sons. 

On  Mar.  18,  1742-43,  "Caleb  Pendleton,  grandfather,  &  James  Pen- 
dleton, father,"  deeded  to  Thomas  Pendleton,  husbandman,  of  Westerly, 
about  three  hundred  acres  of  land  in  that  town.  [W.  L.  E.,  IV,  44.] 
He  was  admitted  freeman  at  Westerly,  May  1,  1744,  and  with  "Darkis" 
Pendleton  witnessed  receipt  given  to  Benoni  Smith  by  Jonathan  Brown, 
Mar.  6,  1747,  for  the  legacy  the  latter 's  wife  received  in  the  will  of  Caleb 
Pendleton.    [Westerly  C.  &  P.  Rec,  III,  330.] 

In  1753,  Thomas  Pendleton  acted  as  executor  of  his  father's  will,  and 
July  6  in  that  year  he  sold  his  property  in  Westerly,  and  on  the  same 
day  bought  from  his  half-brother,  James  Pendleton,  Jr.,  land  in  Sto- 
nington,  Conn.,  for  £1200.  This  property  he  sold  to  John  Randall,  Jr., 
for  £888,  Jan.  28,  1756,  and  on  the  same  day  bought  of  Thomas  Noyes, 
Jr.,  for  £900,  land  at  Pawcatuck.  His  deed  disposing  of  his  property 
has  not  so  far  been  found,  as  the  early  Stonington  deeds  are  indexed 
only  for  grantees. 

Tradition  says  that  Thomas  Pendleton  was  a  whalerman,  and  that  on 
one  of  his  voyages  to  Greenland  he  put  in  at  Castine,  where,  excited  by 

the  beauty  of  the  Penobscot  Bay  region,  he  determinedto  settle In  the 

probating  of  Col.  Joseph  Pendleton 's^esteteTl 7 0 1  ,~~he  received  £101, 
which  may  have  been  due  him  asme  master  of  one  of  the  Colonel's 
vessels.  At  any  rate,  he  removed  to  what  is  now  Islesboro,  Me.,  a  few 
years  before  the  Revolution;  and  when  he  had  established  himself  there, 
he  brought  his  entire  family  to  the  island,  with  the  exception  of  his  son 
Nathaniel,  who  followed  later.

THE  BROWN  GENEALOGY 

twelve  others  (one  of  whom  was  Joseph  Elliott,  who  after- 
ward married  a  half  sister  of  Thomas)  were  taken  prison- 
ers, and  marched  to  the  camp  of  the  Indians,  tied  securely 
and  closely  guarded  by  their  captors  until  the  next  morn- 
ing;  they  wrere  then  taken  to  the  bank  of  the  river  and 
stripped  of  all  their  clothes  except  their  shirts,  and,  led  by 
two  savages  each,  marched  in  file  to  be  tomahawked  by  a 
squaw,  whose  son,  a  young  chief,  was  killed  at  Exeter  on 
July  i,  1778.  Thomas  attempted  to  escape,  and  had  nearly 
crossed  the  river  when  he  was  overtaken  by  the  Indians, 
forced  to  return,  and  was  instantly  speared   and  toma- 
hawked.* 
Thomas  Brown  (47)  m.  (2)  Patience  Brockway.    She  was  French,  and 
Thomas  first  met  her  in  Jamaica,  when  on  a  southern  voyage.    He  was 
ill  with  fever,  and  she  took  care  of  him  until  he  recovered.    He  went  to 
the  Wyoming  Valley  with  the  Connecticut  settlers,  and  in  1754  received 
his  share  of  land.    He  returned  to  Connecticut,  and  then  he  moved  to 
Quaker  Hill,  Duchess  County,  on  the  border  of  New  York  State.    In 
1776  he  again  went  to  Pennsylvania,  and  settled  in  Wilkes-Barre.    He 
built  a  stockade  on  his  own  land  as  a  protection  against  the  Indians. 
At  the  time  of  the  Massacre  he,  with  his  family,  went  into  Forty  Fort. 
Thomas  followed  the  sea  in  his  earlier  days,  and  was  crippled  by  expo- 
sure and  an  injury  to  his  knee,  and  could  not  join  the  army;  but  he  as- 
sisted in  defending  the  fort.     His  son  Thomas  went  out  with  the  army, 
and  was  slain,  as  stated  above.    The  day  after  the  Massacre,  Patience 
(Brockway)  Brown  was  preparing  to  make  bread,  when  word  came  to 
them  to  leave  the  fort.    She  gathered  up  the  dough  in  her  apron  and 
carried  it  with  her.   She  baked  the  dough  in  their  camp  fire  as  they  jour- 
neyed through  the  wilderness.  This  bread,  and  berries  which  they  picked, 
with  the  milk  from  a  cow  which  they  drove  with  them,  kept  the  family 
from  starving.   They  had  five  children  with  them ;  one,  a  boy  about  three 
years  old,  died  the  second  day  of  their  journey,  and  they  dug  a  place  by 
the  side  of  a  log  and  buried  him,  covering  the  grave  with  leaves.    Joseph 
Elliott,  who  married  their  daughter  Patience,  accompanied  them. 

The  following  narrative  was  related  by  Daniel  Brown  (104),  who  was 
probably  the  last  survivor  of  the  Wyoming  Massacre:  "We  moved  to 
the  Wyoming  Valley,  Pa.,  in  1776,  and  lived  on  the  river  bank,  about 
So  yards  below  the  Market  Street  bridge,  Wilkes  Barre,  Pa.,  and  were 
there  at  the  time  of  the  massacre.     Our  family  then  consisted  of  my

father,  Thomas  Brown,  and  his  wife  Patience  (Brockway)  Brown,  an 
older  half  brother,  Thomas  Brown  2d,  two  older  brothers,  and  three 
children  younger  than  myself;  and  Jabez,  and  Joseph  Elliott  who  came 
into  the  valley  with  us  and  took  part  in  all  out  affairs  until  the  campaign 
of  General  Sullivan,  in  which  they  bore  a  part.  The  family  life  was  un- 
eventful until  the  summer  of  1778,  when  the  invasion  of  the  Indians  and 
Torys,  under  Walter  Butler,  made  the  valley  a  theater  of  bloody  carnage 
and  suffering.  This  culminated  on  July  3  when  all  the  able  bodied  men 
and  boys  marched  from  Forty  Fort  to  offer  battle  to  their  foes  who 
were  encamped  in  the  upper  part-  of  the  valley.  Without  an  attempt  to 
describe  the  conflict  it  is  sufficient  to  say  that  our  people  were  overcome 
and  in  the  rout  were  ruthlessly  overtaken  and  slain.  Of  those  belonging 
to  the  family  who  in  the  running  marched  to  the  battle  and  of  which 
this  narrative  treats  —  the  two  Elliotts,  and  Thomas  Brown  2d — only 
Jabez  returned  at  night,  and  brought  the  news  that  Thomas  was  among 
the  slain;  while  Joseph  his  brother  was  among  the  missing,  which  meant 
a  fate  worse  than  death  —  savage  torture.  The  night  after  the  massacre 
was  long  to  be  remembered — mourning  for  the  absent  ones,  mingled  with 
fears  .that  the  savages  would  in  the  night  sweep  down  upon  those  left 
alive  and  thus  make  complete  destruction  throughout  the  valley.  All 
night  the  survivors  made  hasty  preparations  to  fly  as  soon  as  the  morn- 
ing broke,  and  seek  safety  wherever  it  might  be  found.  Jabez  Elliott  and 
the  Browns  lashed  two  canoes  near  to  each  other,  and  over  these  made 
a  platform  large  enough  to  carry  the  children  and  the  mother,  while 
father  prepared  to  lead  his  three  horses  down  the  river  shore  to 
Catawissa,  their  destination.  Just  as  they  were  about  to  start  Joseph 
Elliott  came  in  sight  in  a  very  sad  condition;  his  only  garment  was  a 
shirt  and  his  body  was  all  covered  with  blood.  We  did  not  have  time  to 
hear  his  story,  but  at  once  placed  him  on  the  float  and  made  him  as  com- 
fortable as  we  could  and  started  clown  the  river.  We  arrived  at  Cata- 
wissa the  next  day,  and  then  went  by  Fort  Allen  to  Strouds.  On  our 
return  from  Strouds  we  came  nearly  in  the  route  afterwards  located  as 
the  Eastern  and  Wilkes-Barre  turnpike.  We  came  to  Bear  Creek  at 
noon  of  a  very  rainy  day;  the  creek  was  high  and  our  only  way  to  cross 
it  was  to  fell  a  tree  tall  enough  to  reach  the  other  side  —  we  felled  several 
before  we  succeeded,  as  the  water  would  swing  them  down  the  stream. 
Previous  to  our  arrival  here  it  had  been  necessary  to  send  to  Wilkes 
Barre  for  food  and  fire.  In  the  effort  Jabez  Elliott  and  the  horse  he  rode 
came  near  being  drowned,  and  our  bundle  of  spare  clothes  was  lost. 
Our  condition  when  we  got  over  Bear  Creek  was  sad  indeed  with  no  relief

nearer  than  Wilkes  Barre,  to  which  Elliott  had  gone  for  help.  The  rain 
continued  and  all  were  wet,  chilled  and  hungry.  The  children  cried  and 
could  not  be  comforted.  We  nearly  perished  in  that  dark  and  dreadful 
night,  which  I  shall  always  remember  as  the  time  of  my  greatest  suffer- 
ing. Elliott  came  early  in  the  morning,  and  we  soon  had  a  big  fire  and 
our  hunger  was  appeased.  Soon  starting  again  upon  our  journey  we 
reached  Wilkes  Barre  at  evening.  The  next  year  after  Sullivan's  cam- 
paign we  moved  to  Wyalusing,  Pa.,  and  settled  near  where  I  have  since 
lived." 

Joseph  Elliott's  story:  "After  I  was  taken  prisoner,  myself  and  others 
were  taken  to  the  camp  of  the  Indians  and  tied  securely,  and  closely 
guarded  by  our  captors  until  the  next  morning.  Twelve  of  us  were  then 
taken  near  the  second  bank  of  the  river  within  the  present  town  of 
Wyoming;  we  were  stripped  of  all  our  clothes  except  our  shirts  and, 
led  by  two  savages  each,  were  marched  in  file  to  be  tomahawked  by  a 
squaw  whose  son,  a  young  chief,  was  killed  at  Exeter  on  the  ist.  day  of 
July.  This  tragedy  occurred  on  the  4th.  I  was  next  to  the  last  in  line. 
Titus  Hammond,  the  last,  and  I  determined  to  escape  if  the  least  chance 
offered.  As  we  moved  to  our  turn,  I  saw  just  before  me  the  body  of  a 
fallen  tree  over  which  our  path  led.  As  I  came  near  it,  I  sprang  forwards, 
planting  both  feet  against  it,  and  instantly  jumping  backwards  I  tore 
myself  away  from  my  guards.  Hammond  cleared  himself  at  the  same 
moment,  and  we  both  jumped  down  the  bank.  I  ran  towards  the  river, 
and  Hammond  turned  to  the  right  and  hid  in  a  fallen  tree  top.  Between 
the  place  of  execution  and  the  river  rye  was  standing,  and  it  was  higher 
than  my  head.  It  had  been  trailed  by  fugitives  the  day  before,  so  I 
followed  one.  The  pursuing  Indians  could  not  follow  my  path  for  cer- 
tainty on  account  of  the  other  trails  so  I  gained  a  few  minutes  and  this 
gave  me  time  to  get  into  deep  water  before  they  commenced  shooting. 
As  soon  as  I  could  I  commenced  to  swim  under  the  water,  only  raising 
my  head  for  breath.  Once  when  I  came  up  a  bullet  hit  me  under  my 
shoulder  blade  disabling  one  arm,  but  I  turned  and  swam  on  my  back 
the  rest  of  the  way  using  the  other  arm.  As  soon  as  I  was  over  and  away 
from  the  river,  I  put  a  piece  of  my  shirt  into  the  bullet  hole  to  stop  the 
blood.  I  found  a  loose  horse  and,  with  a  piece  of  bark  for  a  bridle,  rode 
into  Wilkes  Barre.  I  had  a  hard  time  of  it  with  the  wound  for  several 
weeks  but  being  tough,  recovered." 

Joseph  Elliott  and  his  brother  joined  the  Rangers  and  went  up  the 
river  with  General  Sullivan.  Jabez  Elliott,  while  guarding  the  cattle 
of  the  expedition,  was  killed  by  the  Indians  near  Athens,  they  coming

issue;  m.  (2)  Deborah  Lewis.  He  d.  when  over  ninety  years  of  age, 
leaving  many  descendants.    He  is  buried  at  Merryall,  Bradford  Co.,  Penn. 

In  1789  Thomas  Brown  (47)  and  his  family  went  in  canoes  up  the 
Susquehanna  River  to  what  is  now  Wyalusing  Township,  and  settled 
there,  calling  the  place  Browntown.  Most  of  the  land  there  is  still  in 
possession  of  his  descendants,  and  some  farms  have  never  been  trans- 
ferred by  deed,  being  willed  from  father  to  son.  He  was  one  of  the  first 
to  rest  in  the  old  cemetery  at  Wyalusing  Village.  His  is  said  to  be  the 
oldest  marked  grave  in  Bradford  County.  In  August,  1910,  Livingston 
Manor  Chapter,  Daughters  of  the  American  Revolution,  of  Washington, 
D.  C,  placed  a  D.  A.  R.  marker  on  his  grave,  the  small  flag  being  placed 
on  the  marker  by  Chas.  A.  Brumbaugh,  of  Washington,  he  being  a 
great-great-grandson. 

Before  Patience  (Brockway)  Brown  went  into  Forty  Fort  with  her 
family,  the  children  buried  outside,  by  a  tree,  a  pair  of  steelyards,  and  a 
mortar  and  pestle  in  which  Mrs.  Brown  ground  corn  and  spices.  After 
their  return  to  Wilkes-Barre,  these  were  dug  up;  and  on  the  marriage  of 
one  of  the  daughters,  her  mother  presented  them  to  her.  The  mortar  and 
pestle  are  now  cherished  possessions  of  a  great-granddau.,  Charlotte  Segar.

Ezekiel  Brown  (102),  son  of  Thomas  (47)  and  Patience  (Brockway) 
Brown,  b.  1763;  d.,  Fai'rdale,  Penn.,  Jan.  1,  1816;  m.  Polly  Hancock,  b. 
Sept.  10,  176S;  dau.  of  Isaac  Hancock,  of  Wyalusing,  Penn.  Ezekiel 
Brown  was  a  man  of  great  energy  and  hospitality.  In  1792  he  settled  in 
Wyalusing,  and  cleared  land  and  built  a  log  house;  he  soon  had  a  fine 
farm  cleared,  and  a  comfortable  home,  which  was  frequently  used  as  a 
resting-place  by  newly  arrived  settlers  until  they  could  build  houses 
for  themselves.  For  many  years  his  son-in-law  Capt.  John  Mintz  and 
he  owned  the  best  residences  in  the  valley.  Ezekiel  owned  three  black 
slaves, —  Uncle  Tom  and  wife,  and  Timothy  Croggins.  He  held  his 
tract  of  land  under  the  Connecticut  title,  and  after  he  hap!  occupied  it 
for  some  time,  and  made  improvements,  a  gentleman  came  to  his  house 
and  informed  him  that  he,  the  stranger,  owned  that  land.  Mr.  Brown 
replied  that  if  he  owned  any  land  there,  it  was  seven  feet  below  the 
surface;  and,  casting  a  glance  toward  his  rifle,  added  that  unless  he  was 
gone  immediately  he  would  be  put  in  possession  of  it.  The  stranger  took 
the  hint  and  left.

came  from  Connecticut  and  bought  a  large  tract  of  land  under  the

sylvania title.  He  had,  however,  several  hundred  acres  left  in  Sheshequin, 
Penn.,  under  the  new  law.  He  was  a  man  of  considerable  activity  in  the

Brigade  Observation  Camp,  near  the  Monocacy,  Md.  He 
soon  went  with  his  company  to  the  front  in  Virginia  and 
participated  in  several  battles.  At  the  end  of  his  service 
for  two  years,  he  re-enlisted.  After  several  severe  battles 
his  company  was  so  reduced  that  they  consolidated  with 
107th  Regt.,  June  22,  1864.  His  brother  says:  "While  his 
Company  were  guarding  Welden  R.R.,  they  were  attacked 
by  a  superior  force  of  the  enemy,  and  after  a  desperate 
struggle  were  overpowered  and  taken  prisoners.  [The 
army  record  states  he  was  captured  at  Petersburg.]  He 
was  first  confined  in  Libby  Prison,  and  after  several 
months  he  was  taken  to  Andersonville  Prison,  and  later 
was  removed  to  Florence,  S.  C,  and  while  there  died  of 
typhoid  fever.  Several  years  after  the  war  was  over  a  Mr. 
Crum,  of  Elmira,  N.  Y.,  who  was  in  prison  with  him,  and 
who  lived  to  return  home,  located  his  father's  family,  and 
told  them  that  when  Leslie  was  captured  he  had  four 
hundred  dollars  in  greenbacks,  which  he  sewed  in  the 
lining  of  his  cap  before  he  was  searched.  While  he  was  in 
the  prison,  he  lent  all  of  this  money  to  fellow  prisoners 
•and  took  their  notes  for  it,  and  before  his  death  gave  them 
to  Mr.  Crum  to  take  home  to  his  parents."

Ella  Viola  Brown  (315),  dau.  of  Daniel  Warren  (147)  and  Catherine 
Adaline  (King)  Brown,  b.  Sept.  25,  1848;  d.  July  21,  1912;  m.  (1),  June 
20,  1869,  by  Rev.  David  Craft,  Capt.  George  V.  Myer,  b.,  Monroeton, 
Penn.,  Aug.  5,  1841.  He  was  a  civil  engineer.  Sept.  9,  1 861,  he  enlisted 
for  three  years  in  Co.  K,  50th  Regt.  Penn.  Vols.,  recruited  at  Monroe; 
promoted  from  1st  Sergeant  to  2d  Lieutenant,  May  1,  1864;  to  Cap- 
tain, May  1,  1865;  mustered  out  with  company,  July  30,  1865.  He 
was  taken  prisoner  at  Battle  of  Wilderness,  and  confined  in  Libby 
Prison;  he  escaped  through  the  famous  tunnel,  was  re-captured  when 
near  Union  lines,  and  taken  back  to  Richmond.  From  starvation,  sleep- 
ing in  swamps  many  days,  and  traveling  nights,  he  was  taken  with  fever 
before  reaching  Richmond,  and  was  unconscious  for  several  weeks.  When 
he  recovered,  he  found  he  had  been  cared  for  at  a  private  house  where 
he  had  been  taken  by  Masons  (he  being  a  3  2d  degree  member  of  that 
order).  He  was  the  soldier  who  had  a  small  American  flag  secreted  in 
his  boot  when  he  entered  Libby  Prison,  and  on  the  Fourth  of  July  he 
climbed  up  the  rafters  of  the  old  prison  and  pushed  the  little  flag  out 
through  a  crack  at  the  front  peak  of  the  building,  where  it  was  soon 
discovered  by  the  guards,  and  shot  down.  After  escaping  through  the 
tunnel  he,  with  several  others,  traveled  nights,  and  slept  in  swamps 
during  the  days,  and  were  fed  by  colored  people.  They  had  been  out 
several  days  when  the  "Yankee -hunters," — composed  of  men  too  old,  and 
boys  too  young,  to  go  into  the  army,— with  the  aid  of  bloodhounds,  came 
upon  them  while  they  were  in  a  swamp.  They  were  too  weak  to  fight  off 
the  dogs,  so  they  climbed  trees  to  get  out  of  their  reach.  When  the  men 
came  up,  the  younger  ones  leveled  their  guns  to  shoot;  but  Captain 
Myer  gave  the  hailing  sign  of  a  Mason,  and  one  of  the  older  men  recog- 
nized it  and  ordered  them  not  to  shoot.  The  dogs  were  called  off,  the 
prisoners  allowed  to  come  down,  and  they  were  taken  to  the  railroad, 
where  they  were  put  in  a  freight-car,  under  guard,  and  started  for  Rich- 
mond. After  the  war,  Captain  Myer  was  a  civil  engineer  and  pension 
agent.  His  health  was  very  poor  up  to  the  time  of  his  death,  because  of 
hardships  while  in  the  army.  Mrs.  Ella  V.  Myer  m.  (2),  Apr.  3,  1910,

Wait  Palmer,  the  first  pastor  of  the  First  Baptist  Church,  of  No.  Sto-

records,  removed  the  old  house,  built  in  1721  by  his  father,  Daniel  (24), 
where  he  was  born,  using  portions  of  the  timber  for  rebuilding  the 
present  house  on  the  same  site.  It  is  four  miles  from  Westerly,  R.  I., 
on  the  No.  Stonington  road.  This  house  and  farm  have  always  been  oc- 
cupied by  some  member  of  the  Brown  family,  and  were  a  part  of  the 
original  purchase  of  the  three  Brown  brothers,  and  deeded  by  Thomas 
(2)  to  his  son  Daniel  (24).  [See  B.  G.,  Appendix  III,  for  original  deed.] 
Nathan  Brown  spent  his  whole  life,  ninety- three  years,  on  this  farm. 
About  a  mile  distant,  in  full  view  from  this  house,  is  the  beautiful  Union 
Cemetery,  where  he  and  his  wife  and  many  branches  of  the  family  are 
interred.

Revolution,  p.  571. 

On  March,  1781,  Brig-Gen.  Waterbury,  Jr.,  was  appointed  "Commandant  of  the 
Battalion  ordered  to  be  raised  for  the  defense  of  the  Post  at  Horseneck  and  places  ad- 
jacent, and  also  all  the  guards  raised  for  the  defense  of  the  seacoast  from  Horseneck 
to  New  Haven  inclusive."  The  force  was  composed  of  drafts  from  the  militia,  and 
amounted  to  a  brigade  of  two  battalions.  In  July  it  joined  Washington,  while  he  was 
encamped  at  Phillipsburg,  and  for  some  time  after  was  under  Heath's  command  on 
the  Winchester  line. 

Original  roll  as  follows:  "Capt.  Charles  Neil's  Company  is  made  up  of  men  from 
Preston,  Norwich,  New  London,  Colchester,  Lyme,  Stonington,  and  Groton.  In  this 
company  of  79  men  is  found  Robert  Brown,  of  Stonington;  time  joined,  May  24, 1781." 

Robert  Brown  (801)  bought  land  in  Belchertown  of  Thomas  Willson, 
Jan.  n,  1795,  and  on  this  place  he  and  his  two  wives  are  buried.  He 
bought  land  again,  Apr.  17, 1795,  and  on  this  place  he  and  his  first  wife, 
Lydia  D.  Brown,  died.   On  this  last  purchase  there  was  a  saw-mill.    The

proof  is  conclusive  that  Robert  Brown,  Jr.,  and  the  other  children  that 
follow,  were  born  in  Belchertown.  [Probate  Records,  Northampton.] 
There  is  a  tradition  that  when  Robert  and  wife  Lydia  D.  (Brown)  Brown 
removed  from  Stonington,  Conn.,  they  went  to  Bridgewater,  Mass., 
and  from  there  he  removed,  with  all  his  belongings  in  an  ox-cart,  to 
Belchertown,  where  he  made  a  permanent  home.

five  years.  She  is  remembered  in  Amherst  by  many  whose  hearts  have 
been  made  glad  by  her  charitable  acts  and  her  loving  counsel.  The  larger 
part  of  her  life  was  spent  in  No.  Amherst,  where  her  husband  had  been 
engaged  first  in  farming,  later  in  mercantile  business.  The  last  few  years 
they  lived  retired.  She  was  a  member  of  the  Congregational  Church  for 
many  years,  always  devoted  to  its  interests.  Her  home  was  a  place  of 
generous  hospitality.  Her  religion  was  of  the  sunny,  cheerful  kind. 
She  was  longing  always  to  do  more  for  the  poor  and  needy  —  it  was 
characteristic  of  her  whole  life.  Many  rise  up  to  call  her  blessed.  "I  will 
make  Thy  name  to  be  remembered  in  all  generations."

IN   MEMORIAM. 

Long  has  she  walked  among  us, 

But  here  her  journey  ends; 
She  has  reached  the  goal  at  last 

Towards  which  each  footstep  tends; 
A  weary  time  she  waited 

For  the  messenger  of  light 
Who  should  bid  her  soul  arise 

And  heavenward  take  its  flight. 

There  's  a  message  on  her  upturned  face 

Her  silent  lips  may  never  tell, 
As  tho'  she  heard  the  angels  whisper, 

And  we  know  that  all  is  well. 
That  all  is  well  ■ — 

Assurance  sweet  for  us  who  tarry  here  a  space 
Till  we,  too,  shall  hear  the  summons 

To  meet  our  Saviour  face  to  face. 

We  who  have  still  to  front  the  world 

And  brave'its  storm  and  strife, 
We  well  might  envy  her  her  rest, 

Who  has  entered  into  life. 
So  calm  is  she  in  dreamless  sleep, 

No  throb  disturbs  her  breast, 
As  though  an  angel  held  her  hands  — 

How  sweet,  how  sweet  is  restl

member  of  the  School  Board,  Postmaster,  and  storekeeper,  then  moving 
to  Amherst,  where  he  made  a  permanent  home  until  the  death  of  his 
wife.  During  the  past  years  he  has  cultivated  his  farm,  but  has  given 
special  attention  to  landscape  gardening,  having  a  natural  aptitude  for 
that  work.  He  has  graded  the  most  of  the  lawns  in  town,  and  constructed

When  the  golden  wedding  of  Abel  P.  Brown  and  wife  was  announced  in 
the  Boston  Globe,  Nov.,  1909,  it  led  the  compiler  to  make  an  exhaustive 
research,  and  he  found  the  progenitors  of  these  large  families.  Robert 
and  Lydia  D.  Brown  removed  from  Stonington  [now  No.  Stonington], 
Conn.,  about  ten  years  after  their  marriage,  to  Belchertown,  Mass.,

982.  Maria  Emma,  b.  Jan.   29,   1836;  unm.     She  was  a  school- 

teacher for  thirty-five  years,  first  in  Massachusetts,  later 
in  Douglas,  Martin,  and  Grand  Rapids,  Mich;  in  the  latter 
school  she  was  principal  for  seventeen  years.  Her  life-work 
was  the  moulding  of  character  and  stamping  the  impres- 
sionable minds  of  the  young.  She  believes  that  although 
she  never  married  her  life  has  been  well  spent,  and  she  looks 
backward  with  delight  and  satisfaction.  Had  it  not  been 
for  her  persistent  efforts  many  of  these  records  would 
have  been  very  incomplete.  Where  there  was  a  lack  of 
earnestness  on  the  part  of  some,  she  infused  life  to  grasp 
an  opportunity  to  place  these  family  records  in  a  tangible 
form.  She  is  a  member  of  the  Congregational  Church,

the  town  of  Ware  in  1862,  where  they  bought  a  farm  of  one 
hundred  and  five  acres.  Here  they  made  improvements 
by  building  a  barn,  and  later,  in  1875,  a  fine,  new  house. 
Here  for  thirty-four  years  they  made  a  happy,  pleasant 
home.  It  is  now  fifty  years  since  the  home  was  established.

but  no  trace  could  be  found.  He  was  a  Republican,  and

The  following  is  an  extract  from  "History  of  Kansas  City,  Mo.": 

"Stephen  Northrop  Dwight,  who  spent  his  last  days  in  Kansas  City, 
was  prominently  identified  with  the  development  of  the  West  as  a  repre- 
sentative of  financial  banking  and  mining  interests.  His  superior  busi- 
ness ability,  enterprise,  and  ready  grasp  of  a  situation  enabled  him  to  be- 
come closely  associated  with  the  establishment  and  successful  conduct 
of  enterprises  which  proved  important  factors  in  the  growth  and  progress 
of  this  section  of  the  country. 

''Stephen  N.  Dwight  spent  his  boyhood,  and  received  his  education,  in 
New  Haven,  Conn.  His  father  moved  to  Michigan,  and  he  began  his 
business  career  in  Kalamazoo,  Mich.;  but  study  of  the  business  situa- 
tion of  the  country,  in  various  sections,  led  him  to  believe  that  the  West 
offered  splendid  opportunities,  and  accordingly  he  made  his  way  to 
Kansas  in  1874.  His  first  location  was  at  Independence,  that  State, 
where  he  engaged  in  the  banking  business.  He  continued  in  that  business 
until  about  ten  years  before  his  death.  He  was  connected  with  several 
banks  in  Kansas,  also  organized, and  was  cashier, of  the  American  National 
Bank  at  Fort  Smith,  Ark.,  but  not  liking  the  climate  sold  his  interest 
and  went  to  Leadville,  where  he  organized  the  American  National  Bank 

*33 


THE  BROWN  GENEALOGY 

and  was  its  president.  Wanting  to  be  out  of  doors  more  he  sold  his  in- 
terest in  the  bank  and  engaged  in  mining  for  a  time;  he  then  went  to  Cal- 
ifornia, where  he  stayed  more  than  a  year;  but  it  seemed  too  far  away 
from  all  friends  and  relatives,  so  he  returned  to  Kansas  and  became 
identified  with  the  development  of  the  mining  resources  at  Galena,  Kan. 
He  bought  the  water-works,  which  he  enlarged  and  improved  in  every 
way.  He  closed  out  his  mining  interests  before  moving  to  Kansas  City, 
but  owned  and  operated  the  water- works  up  to  the  time  of  his  death. 
One  of  the  elements  of  his  exceedingly  successful  career  was  the  quick- 
ness with  which  he  noted  an  opportunity  that  others  passed  heedlessly 
by,  when  he  saw  a  chance. 

"Mr.  Dwight's  political  allegiance  was  given  to  the  Republican  Party, 
and  fraternally  he  was  connected  with  the  Masons  and  Knights  of 
Pythias.  His  face  indicated  that  character,  balance,  harmony,  and 
sound  judgment  were  among  his  natural  traits.  Quietude  of  deportment, 
easy  dignity,  and  a  frankness  and  cordiality  of  address  were  among  his 
noticeable  characteristics.  He  was  ever  ready  to  meet  any  obligation  of 
life  with  the  confidence  and  courage  that  come  of  conscious  personal 
ability,  right  conception  of  things,  and  an  habitual  regard  for  what 
was  best  in  the  exercise  of  human  activities  for  profitable  investment  or 
for  the  establishment  of  an  enterprise  that  promised  success.  Forming 
his  plans  readily,  he  was  determined  in  their  execution,  and  carried 
forward  to  successful  completion  whatever  he  undertook.  In  his  mental 
review  of  the  West  he  noted  the  bright  outlook  before  Kansas  City,  and 
showed  his  faith  in  its  future  by  the  purchase  of  considerable  property. 
Time  demonstrated  his  wisdom  in  this  regard  in  increased  value  of  his 
realty  holdings.  The  erection  of  the  handsome  office  structure  known  as 
the  Dwight  Building,  at  the  corner  of  Tenth  St.  and  Baltimore  Ave.,  is 
an  evidence  of  his  foresight  and  faith  in  Kansas  City's  future  greatness. 
This  magnificent  building  was  the  pioneer  of  its  kind,  and  added  an  im- 
portant step  to  Kansas  City's  realty  growth  that  can  only  be  estimated 
by  a  review  of  the  improved  property  conditions  of  that  immediate  lo- 
cality. The  success  of  this  undertaking  added  a  stimulus  to  Kansas 
City's  real-estate  interests  at  a  time  when  most  needed,  and  stands  as  a 
monument  to  his  enterprise  and  judgment.  The  property  is  still  owned 
by  Mrs.  Dwight.  Mr.  Dwight  was  a  man  of  domestic  taste,  finding  his 
greatest  happiness  at  his  own  fireside,  and  a  most  congenial  companion- 
ship existed  between  himself  and  his  wife. 

"Mrs.  Dwight  was  educated  at  Baker  University,  a  Methodist  institu- 
tion, at  Baldwin,  Kan.    She  was  a  helpmate  in  every  sense  of  the  word.

son,  erected  a  new  house. 

We  find  that  Daniel  (24)  removed  to  the  north  part  of  the  town  near 
his  son  Captain  Christopher  (1109).  He  was  active  in  church  work, 
living  in  the  immediate  vicinity  of  the  First  Baptist  Meeting-house,  in 
Stonington,  which  was  built  on  land  given  by  him  and  Thomas  Holmes. 
The  church  was  organized  in  1743.  Probably  the  first  interments  on  the 
Christopher  Brown  farm  were  his  first  wife,  Mary  (Breed)  Brown,  in 
1744,  his  second  wife,  Prudence,  in  1768,  and  Daniel,  in  1771.  Their 
headstones  were  imported  from  England.  This  burying-ground  is  en- 
closed by  a  heavy  stone  wall.  Years  ago  this  enclosure  of  the  dead  is 
said  to  have  been  well  kept;  at  present  the  grounds  need  attention  where 
these  honored  dead  rest. 

The  original  deed  from  Thomas  Brown  (2)  to  his  son  Daniel  Brown 
(24)  has  been  preserved  and  handed  down  from  generation  to  generation: 
to  his  son  Christopher  (59),  to  his  son  Christopher,  Jr.  (107),  to  his  son 
Nathan  W.,  and  to  his  son  Frank  E.  Brown,  and  is  now  [1914]  in  his 
possession;  also  other  original  ancient  documents,  in  a  good  state  of 
preservation.

other  person  is  known  who  could  have  been  the  person  referred  to  in 
the  acts  in  question.  He  is  referred  to  as  Captain  Daniel  in  the  records 
of  those  families  who  have  the  tradition  that  he  was  a  Quaker.  No  record 
exists  of  any  service  in  the  Revolutionary  War.  He  was  the  first  settler 
in  the  town  of  Brookfield,  Madison  Co.,  N.  Y.,  locating  there  in  1791,

THE  BROWN  GENEALOGY 

The  Breed  family  will  be  of  interest  in  this  connection,  as  Daniel 
Brown  (24)  married  into  the  Breed  family. 

Allen  Breed,  the  progenitor  of  the  Breed  family,  appears  first  in  Lynn, 
Mass.,  in  1630.  He  was  b.  in  England  in  1601.  The  name  of  his  wife 
is  unknown.    He  d.  Mar.  17,  1692,  and  had  five  children. 

Their  son: 

Allen  Breed,  b.  1626;  m.  Mary ,  and  had  six  children. 

Their  son : 

John  Breed,  b.,  Lynn,  Jan.  18,  1663;  m.  (1),  Apr.  28,  1686,  Mary  Kirt- 
land,  b.  July  15,  1667;  d.  Jan.  28,  1688;  dau.  of  Sarah.  He  resided  in 
Lynn  until  after  the  death  of  his  wife  and  dau.,  and  then  removed  to 
Stonington,  Conn.  He  m.  (2),  June  8,  1690,  Mercy  Palmer,  b.,  Ston- 
ington,  1668;  dau.  of  Dea.  Gershom  Palmer  and  wife,  Ann,  dau.  of  Capt. 
George  Denison  and  wife,  Ann  (Borodell)  Denison. 

Mr.  Breed  purchased  land  of  Gershom  Palmer,  the  father  of  his  sec- 
ond wife.  Gershom  Palmer  fixed  his  permanent  place  of  abode  on  the 
eastern  slope  of  Taugwonk,  in  Stonington,  locating  his  house  on  the 
present  site  of  the  residence  of  Elias  H.  Miner,  in  Angwilla,  so-called. 
Here  at  this  house  were  frequently  held  the  Stonington  town  meetings. 
A  stone  marked  "  G.  P.,"  that  was  in  the  chimney,  was  preserved  by  Mr. 
Miner  when  he  removed  the  old  house,  and  was  set  in  the  underpinning 
of  the  present  house,  near  the  east  side  door.  The  lineage  of  the  Palmer 
family  of  Stonington  is  of  peculiar  interest,  as  they  were  of  sterling 
worth,  who  placed  their  good  names  among  the  best  citizens  of  Stoning- 
ton. The  progenitor  was  Walter  Palmer,  who  settled  in  Stonington  as 
early  as  1628.  He  was  born  in  London,  England,  in  1585.  At  the  time 
of  his  settlement  here  he  had  reached  the  rugged  steep  of  life's  decline. 
[Wheeler.]  He  is  buried  in  the  old  Wequetequock  burial-ground,  dying 
Nov.  10,  1 66 1.  It  is  not  my  purpose  to  give  the  records  of  the  Palmer 
family  of  Stonington,  but  to  show  the  lineage  of  Mercy,  the  grand- 
dau.  of  Walter  Palmer. 

John  Breed,  who  m.  Mercy  Palmer,  built  his  house  in  Angwilla,  about 
one  mile  east  from  her  father's  house,  and  but  a  few  rods  west  of  the  house 
of  Henry  Breed.  In  a  radius  of  two  miles  and  less  many  of  the  Breed 
families  built  their  homes.  It  was  known  as  Breedtown.  Where  Hermon 
C.  Brown's  house  stands  was  Jesse  Breed's  house,  probably  built  by 
his  father,  Amos  Breed.  But  many  of  the  old  houses  built  in  this  local- 
ity have  been  removed,  and  but  few  houses  now  take  their  places.  John 
Breed  and  wife  Mercy  are  buried  in  the  old  Wequetequock  burying- 
ground.    We  read: 

154 


THE  BROWN  GENEALOGY 

In  memory  of  a  pious  pair,  this  carved  stone  was  erected  here,  viz.,  of  Mr.  John 
Breed  and  his  wife  Mercy,  who  lived  together  in  ye  marriage  state  in  a  most  religious 
manner  about  64  years  and  then  deceased,  leaving  a  numerous  offspring.  He  in  1751 
about  ninety  years  of  age  and  she  in  1752  about  eighty-three  years.  Erected  in  the 
year  1772  by  six  of  their  children  then  living. 

Behold  the  righteous  live  long  on  the  earth, 

And  in  old  age  resign  their  breath, 

They  and  their  offspring  here  are  blessed; 

When  done  with  life  they  go  to  rest. 

The  Roswell  Breed  house  is  still  [1914]  standing,  near  the  home  of 
the  late  Elias  Miner,  but  is  now  unoccupied.  It  has  been  the  home  of 
numerous  families,  but  is  not  on  any  public  road.  Here  the  late  Albert 
W.  Hillard  and  wife,  Emily  M.  Randall,  dau.  of  the  Hon.  William  Ran- 
dall, of  No.  Stonington,  began  their  newly  wedded  life,  in  1852. 

John  Breed  and  Mercy  Palmer,  his  wife,  had  ten  children.  The  second 
dau.,  Mary  Palmer  Breed,  m.  Daniel  Brown,  son  of  Thomas  (2),  who 
lived  one  mile  north  of  Mr.  John  Breed's  house. 

Walter  Brown  (1106),  son  of  Daniel  (24)  and  Mary  Palmer  (Breed) 
Brown  [Thomas  (2),  Thomas],  b.,  Stonington,  Conn.,  Feb.  1,  1728; 
d.  Sept.  14,  1808.  He  was  named  for  his  great-great-grandfather  Walter 
Palmer.  He  m.  (1),  Little  Compton,  R.  I.,  Jan.  3,  1754,  Elizabeth  Wil- 
bur, b.,  Little  Compton,  Mar.  17,  1730;  d.  June  15,  1768,  aged  thirty- 
eight  years.  She  is  buried  in  the  Christopher  Brown  burying-ground 
with  her  son  Isaac.  She  had  a  sister,  Phebe  Wilbur,  who  m.  Walter 
Brown's  brother  Samuel  (1104).  Walter  Brown  and  Elizabeth  Wilbur 
were  m.  by  Rev.  Jonathan  Ellis,  of  Little  Compton.  Walter  Brown  m.  (2) 

May ,  d.  Mar.  16,  1795.     Buried  at  Preston,  Conn.;  also  many  of 

the  children.

1724,  at  2  o'clock  p.m.;  son  of  Joshua  Rathbone  and  Mary  Wightman, 
dau.  of  Rev.  Valentine  Wightman,  of  Groton,  a  descendant  of  Rev. 
Edward  Wightman,  burned  at  the  stake  in  Litchfield,  England,  in  161 2 
—  the  last  man  in  England  to  so  suffer  for  conscience'  sake. 

Rev.  Valentine  Wightman,  the  father  of  Mary  Wightman  mentioned 
above,  organized  the  first  Baptist  church  in  Connecticut,  and  the  first 
Baptist  church  west  of  Providence,  R.  I., —  at  Groton, —  in  1705.  He 
assisted  in  planting  the  first  Baptist  church  in  the  city  and  State  of  New 
York.  He  was  a  well-educated  and  scholarly  man;  aided  in  planting 
churches  in  Stonington,  Waterford,  and  Lyme,  Conn.  He  was  pastor  of 
the  Groton  church  forty-two  years,  and  was  succeeded  by  his  son  Rev. 
Timothy  Wightman,  who  was  tried  by  the  erratic  ideas  and  practices  of  a 
band  of  Rogerine  Quakers,  that  aimed  at  times  to  disturb  his  meetings; 
but  his  serenity  and  good  judgment  foiled  their  designs.  They  would 
attend  his  meetings,  taking  with  them  their  basket-work,  and  during  the 
service  one  of  them  addressed  the  minister:  "Timothy,  thou  liest;  thou 
knowest  thou  liest."  He  was  a  plain,  fearless,  discreet,  faithful  preacher, 
like  his  honored  father  before  him.  He  also  served  the  Groton  church 
for  forty-two  years.  The  next  to  succeed  Rev.  Timothy  Wightman  was 
his  youngest  son,  Rev.  John  Gano  Wightman,  who  was  a  man  distin-

an  excellent,  goodly  personal  appearance  and  bearing,  who  won  a  high 
rank  in  the  councils  and  associations  of  the  Baptist  denomination.  He 
was  pastor  forty-one  years.  Thus  father,  son,  and  grandson  served 
successively  the  old  Groton  church  for  one  hundred  and  twenty-five 
years.

PEACE. 

"The  Peace  of  God,  which  passeth  understanding," 
O  gift  divine  to  our  sin-burdened  lives, 
A  balm  thou  art  in  every  truth  for  healing 
The  wounds  left  sore  in  him  who  with  sin  strives. 

First  Hope,  a  pure,  sweet  flower,  comes  to  lead  us, 

To  bid  us  seek  the  future  promise  fair. 
Alas!  Reality's  cold  blast  soon  strikes  us, 

And  Hope's  poor  withered  stalk  is  left  all  bare. 

Then  Love's  clear  star  makes  bright  the  path  of  life. 

"Oh,  surely  this  is  real,  is  true,"  we  cry; 
But  all  too  soon  our  loved  ones  are  called  from  us, 

And  "Love  was  but  a  meteor,"  we  sigh. 

But  Peace,  God's  blessed,  is  left  to  us. 
And  what  could  we  ask  more  than  this  sweet  rest? 

From  all  earth's  cares  and  sorrows  we  may  turn, 
And  only  know  we  are  leaning  on  His  breast.

74;  in  Loda  for  two  years,  1875-77. 

Mr.  Perry,  at  the  age  of  eighteen,  enlisted  in  1st  Conn. 
Reg.  Cavalry  Vols.,  Oct.  31,  1861,  at  New  London,  Conn., 
and  was  mustered  into  service  at  Camp  Tyler,  West

Corporal  Feb.  6,  1864,  and  honorably  discharged  Nov.  2, 
1864.  He  served  in  General  Custer's  Division  under  Gen- 
eral Sheridan.  He  was  engaged  in  the  Battle  of  Cedar

twenty-mile  ride  from  Winchester.  At  the  close  of  the

mained until  his  death.   His  townsmen  elected  him  a  mera-

ber  of  the  Town  Board,  and  for  three  years  honored  him 
with  the  presidency.  For  several  years  he  was  a  member  of 
the  Board  of  School  Directors  and  County  Coroner.  He 
was  a  charter  member  of  the  Melvin  G.  A.  R.  Post,  and  a 
charter  member  of  Melvin  Masonic  Lodge  No.  811,  being 
the  oldest  in  membership  in  this  body.  During  his  twenty 
years  of  medical  practice  he  gave  much  time  to  general 
reading.  He  was  esteemed  in  his  home  as  a  good  physician 
and  entertaining  guest.  His  sons  and  daughters  are,  after 
a  manner,  his  educated  ideas;  and  the  preparation  for  life- 
work  by  so  many  members  of  one  family  is  no  small  com- 
ment on  the  directing  power  and  influence  behind  it  all. 
He  wanted  his  children  educated  for  the  good  of  society 
and  the  welfare  of  the  nation  as  well  as  for  their  own  per- 
sonal advantage. — Extract  from  Melvin  Transcript.

THE  BROWN  GENEALOGY 

Mahitabel  Brown  (35),  dau.  of  John  (9)  and  Elizabeth  (Miner)  Brown, 
son  of  Thomas  and  Mary  (Newhall)  Brown,  of  Lynn,  Mass,  b.,  Stoning- 
ton,  Conn.,  Aug.,  1712;  m.  (1),  Stonington,  Jan.  13,  1731,  "by  ye  Rev. 
Mr.  Ebenezer  Russell,"  Nathaniel  Swan,  b.,  Stonington  (Swantown 
Hill),  Apr.  13,  1709,  the  first  child  b.  in  Stonington  by  the  name  of  Swan. 
The  coming  of  John  Swan  to  Swantown  Hill  was  when  the  country  was  in 
a  primitive  state,  and  this  great  Hill  was  one  vast  forest  where  the  wood- 
man awoke  the  echoes  with  his  axe  to  let  in  the  sunlight,  and  there  to 
stir  the  earth  and  scatter  the  seed.  Hither  came  Mahitabel  Brown  Swan, 
then  a  bride,  five  miles  away  from  her  home,  where  her  father  had  made 
an  early  settlement,  in  1680. 

A  sketch  of  the  Swan  family  will  here  be  given,  then  will  follow  the 
children  of  the  above. 

"The  first  known  of  John  Swan,  the  father  of  Nathaniel  above,  was 
when  he  was  living  in  Haverhill,  Mass.  He  m.  Mrs.  Susannah  Wood 
Aug.  1,  1699,  dau.  of  Philip  Eastman  and  granddau.  of  Roger  Eastman. 
Her  first  m.  was  to  Thomas  Wood,  May  16,  1693.  Thomas  and  child 
Susannah  were  killed  by  the  Indians  Mar.  15,  1697.  They  lived  in  Haver- 
hill until  1707,  where  three  of  their  children  were  born. 

"Haverhill  was  a  frontier  town  of  nearly  70  years,  and  but  few  towns 
suffered  so  severely  from  the  Indians.  At  this  period  we  can  have  but  a 
faint  conception  of  the  sufferings  of  the  inhabitants.  Surrounded  by  an 
immense  and  mostly  unexplored  forest,  constantly  exposed  to  the  attacks 
of  savages,  are  circumstances  that  make  us  wonder  why  they  should 
continue  to  march  onward  and  onward  into  the  wilderness, —  terrific  for 
its  extent, —  and  unfurl  the  banner  of  civilization  under  the  very  shadow 
of  the  enemies'  wigwam.  Thus  did  John  Swan  and  his  heroic  wife  begin 
their  home  in  Haverhill. 

"Two  Indians  attacked  their  house.  Mrs.  Swan  saw  them  approach- 
ing, and  they  determined,  if  possible,  to  save  their  own  lives  and  the 
lives  of  their  children  from  the  knives  of  the  ruthless  butchers.  They  im- 
mediately placed  themselves  against  the  door.  The  Indians  rushed 
against  it,  but  finding  it  could  not  be  easily  opened,  they  commenced 
their  operations  more  systematically.  One  of  them  placed  his  back 
against  it,  so  that  he  could  make  his  whole  strength  bear  upon  it,  while 
the  other  pushed  against  him.  The  strength  of  the  besiegers  was  greater 
than  that  of  the  besieged,  and  Mr.  Swan,  almost  despaired  of  saving 
himself  and  family,  said  to  his  wife  that  he  thought  it  would  be  better  to 
let  them  come  in.  But  his  resolute  and  courageous  wife  had  no  such  in- 
tentions. The  Indians  had  now  succeeded  in  partly  opening  the  doo/,  and 

214 


THE  BROWN  GENEALOGY 

one  of  them  was  crowding  himself  in,  while  the  other  was  pushing  lustily 
after.  The  heroic  wife  saw  that  there  was  no  time  for  parleying.  She 
seized  her  spit  (an  iron  about  three  feet  long,  pointed  at  the  end  for  hold- 
ing meat  over  a  fire  for  cooking),  —  a  deadly  weapon  in  the  hands  of  a 
woman,  as  it  proved, — and,  collecting  all  the  strength  she  possessed,  drove 
it  through  the  body  of  the  foremost.  This  was  too  warm  a  reception  for 
the  Indians,  and  was  a  resistance  from  a  source,  and  with  a  weapon,  they 
little  expected;  and  surely,  who  else  would  ever  think  of  spitting  a  man? 
Thus,  by  the  heroic  courage  of  a  wife  and  mother,  this  family  was  saved 
from  a  bloody  grave." 

This  record  came  wholly  from  tradition.  It  was  related  by  an  aged 
and  venerable  gentleman  who  had  often  heard  it  told  by  his  grandfather.

Children : 

I.    Jonathan  Brown,  Jr.,  m.,  Sept.  30,  1742,  Elizabeth  Burroughs. 

217 


THE  BROWN  GENEALOGY 

He  may  also  have  been  the  Jonathan  Brown  who  m., 
Westerly,  Mar.  i,  1757,  Elizabeth  Burdick  [Westerly  Rec], 
although  this  record  would  be  equally  applicable  to  his 
namesake  already  referred  to,  as  would  also  be  the  follow- 
ing: "29th  Dec.,  1760,  Elizabeth  Brown,  widow,  was 
apptd.  admx.  of  the  estate  of  Jonathan  Brown  Jr.,  and  on 
the  26th  Oct.,  1761,  she  appeared  before  the  Council  and 
presented  an  account  against  the  estate  for  'keeping  two  of 
the  deceased's  Orphan  Children  forty  weeks  each.' "  [West- 
erly C.  &  P.  Rec,  III,  636,  677.]  Still,  on  the  17th  of  Oct., 
1768,  "Elizabeth  Brown,  widow  of  Jonathan  Brown, late  of 
Westerly,  dec,"  m.  John  Moon,  of  Exeter.  We  do  not  find 
that  the  other  Jonathan  Brown  was  ever  at  Westerly. 
[Pendleton  Gen.,  by  Everett  Pendleton.] 

II.    Eleazer,  d.,  probably,  in  the  French  and  Indian  War;  m., 
Nov.  10,  1742,  Sarah  Die  [Dye]  [Second  Ch.  Ston.] 

III.  Elizabeth,  b.  1724;  d.,  Westerly,  R.  I.,  Sept.  15,  1813,  aged 
eighty-nine  years  [G.  S.];  m.,  Nov.  9,  1743,  William  Brom- 
ley. [First  Ch.  Ston.  Rec].  Their  children  are  given  upon 
the  Westerly  Records,  and  William  Bromley's  will  is  also 
to  be  found  there.  They  were  the  parents  of  that  Perry 
Bromley  whose  marriage  to  Dorcas  Pendleton  was  the 
source  of  much  perplexity. 

IV.  Ebenezer,  b.  1724-25;  d.,  No.  Stonington,  Conn.,  May  10, 
1816,  aged  ninety-two  years.  He  operated  a  grist-mill  at 
Westerly,  near  the  east  end  of  the  Pawcatuck  Bridge, 
until  about  1799,  when  he  bought  a  seventy-six  acre  farm 
in  No.  Stonington,  where  he  lived  the  rest  of  his  life.  The 
gravestone  beside  his,  names  as  his  wife  Abigail,  who  d. 
Sept.  12,  181 1,  aged  sixty-five  [B.  G.,  p.  533].  She  was 
probably  his  second  wife,  as  there  seems  no  doubt  but 
that  he  was  the  Ebenezer  Brown  who  m.,  Westerly,  Feb.  5, 
1756,  Anna  Wells,  of  Stonington,  and  had  children  [re- 
corded upon  Westerly  Rec]:  Caleb,  Hannah,  Lydia,  John, 
Amy,  Sarah,  Dorothy,  and  Nathan.  On  Oct.  25,  1790, 
Capt.  Caleb  Brown  was  appointed  guardian  of  Ebenezer 
Brown  and  family.  [West.  C.  &  P.  Rec,  V,  55.]  Only  one 
child  of  Ebenezer 's  is  referred  to  in  B.  G.,  and  this  one  is 
called  Joshua,  b.  1782.   [Pendleton  Gen.,  p.  70.]

THE  BROWN  GENEALOGY 

Ebenezer  Brown  (IV),  son  of  Jonathan  (37),  son  of  Eleazer  Brown  (11) 
and  Ann  Pendleton,  b.  1724-25;  d.,  No.  Stonington,  Conn.,  May  10, 
1816,  aged  ninety-two  years;  m.  Abigail  Davis,  d.  Sept.  12,  181 1,  aged 
sixty- five  years.  He  lived  in  Westerly,  R.  I.,  and  owned  considerable  real 
estate.  On  the  first  map  of  Westerly,  published  in  1 795,  is  given  "  Brown's 
Mill"  (grist-mill),  running  two  sets  of  stones  near  the  east  end  of  Paw- 
catuck  Bridge,  by  which  name  the  village  was  known  for  many  years. 
He  sold  his  mill  in  Westerly  and  bought  a  farm  in  the  eastern  part  of 
No.  Stonington  one  mile  west  of  Clark's  Falls,  but  not  on  the  highway; 
it  is  entered  near  the  home  of  Daniel  Wright,  a  long-time  resident  on 
the  road  that  leads  to  Boom  Bridge.  He  removed  to  this  farm  in  1799, 
where  he  spent  his  remaining  days.  The  house  is  still  standing,  but 
has  been  for  a  long  time  vacant.  From  a  well-kept  and  walled  burying- 
ground  near  the  old  house  many  of  these  records  were  taken. 

Deed  from  Reuben  Hall  to  Ebenezer  Brown  is  in  the  possession  of 
Elmer  Y.  Brown  (17 18),  of  No.  Stonington,  Conn.

in  18 10  that  he  had  issue.

Mott  and  Harriet  E.  McNeil,  of  Bozrah,  Conn.  Being 
left  an  orphan  at  the  age  of  seven  months,  he  was  adopted 
by  his  mother's  sister,  Sally  Adams,  who  afterward  mar- 
ried Duncan  McAllester,  of  Norwich.  In  the  year  1850 
he,  with  his  foster  parents,  removed  to  Colchester,  Conn., 
where  he  continued  to  reside  until  the  year  1864,  his  sum- 
mers being  spent  on  the  Lane  farm,  and  his  winters  in  the 
Hayward  Rubber  Works  in  Colchester,  with  the  exception 
of  one  winter  when  he  taught  the  Chestnut  Hill  District

Infantry,  Aug.  8,  1862;  was  promoted  to  2d  Lieutenant  of 
same  company  Sept.  5, 1862 ;  and  was  honorably  discharged, 
at  Pleasant  Valley,  Md.,  Oct.  n,  1862,  being  obliged  to 
resign  on  account  of  physical  disabilities  incurred  while 
in  camp  at  Arlington  Heights,  Va.,  and  from  which  dis- 
abilities he  never  fully  recovered.  He  was  converted  at 
Willimantic  Camp-meeting  in  i860,  and  joined  the  church 
at  Colchester.  The  church  gave  him  license  to  exhort,  in 
1861,  and  to  preach,  in  1863.  In  1864,  having  entered  the 
ministry  of  the  Methodist  Episcopal  Church,  he  removed 
from  Colchester  and  became  the  pastor  of  the  Methodist 
Episcopal  Church  at  Square  Pond,  now  Diamond  Lake, 
Conn.  In  the  spring  of  1865  he  joined  the  New  England 
Southern  Conference  [then  called  the  Providence  Con- 
ference] and  served  as  the  pastor  of  the  following  churches: 
1865-67,  East  Thompson;  1868-69,  Staff ordville;  1S70-71, 
East  Glastonbury;  1872,  Greenville;  1873-74,  Wapping 
[all  of  these  churches  were  located  in  Connecticut];  1875- 
76,  Dighton,  Mass.;  1877-79,  Warehouse  Point,  Conn.; 
1880,  Attawaugan,  Conn.;  1881-82;  Mystic,  Conn,  [now

1 891,  Hope,  R.  L;  1892-93,  Wickford,  R.  I. 

In  1894,  because  of  failing  health,  he  took  a  super- 
annuated relation  and  removed  to  Providence,  in  which 
city  he  lived  until  his  death,  Mar.  15,  1909.  From  1894  to 
1896  he  supplied  the  Wanskuck  Church,  and  largely  through

his  efforts  a  neat  and  commodious  chapel  was  erected.  He 
served  as  Chaplain  of  the  G.  A.  R.  Post  at  Wickford,  and 
as  Chaplain  and  Adjutant  of  Slocum  Post  of  Providence. 
For  seven  years  he  was  connected  with  the  Evening  Telegram 
as  Grand- Army  correspondent.  He  also  occupied  for  sev- 
eral years  a  position  of  trust  in  the  Conference  as  Treasurer 
of  Conference  Claimants'  Fund.  He  never  forgot  his  spir- 
itual birthplace,  Willimantic  Camp-ground,  and  for  several 
years  rendered  efficient  services  as  a  member  of  the  exec- 
utive committee,  at  the  same  time  reporting  for  the  Hart- 
ford Courant  during  camp-meeting  week.  As  a  preacher  he 
was  scriptural,  methodical,  earnest,  and  instructive.  He 
was  a  student  of  the  Bible,  and  most  heartily  believed  and 
taught  what  he  found  therein.  Such  a  preacher  could  not 
fail  to  interest  his  hearers  and  to  build  up  his  churches.

This  farm  now,  in  1914,  owned  by  the  heirs  of  Zebulon  Y.  Brown  (1699),  was  leased 
to  Cyrus  W.  Brown,  Jr.,  the  father  of  the  compiler  of  this  book.  To  show  the  great 
value  of  this  farm  in  1833,  and  the  rental  yearly,  which  at  the  then  current  prices 
amounted  to  $515  (five  hundred  and  fifteen  dollars),  this  lease  is  here  transcribed. 
The  largest  item  in  the  lease  was  cheese,  at  five  cents  a  pound;  now  [1914]  three  times 
as  much  —  yet  it  is  said  it  does  not  pay  to  farm. 

At  the  time  of  this  lease,  No.  Stonington  had  twenty-seven  hundred  inhabitants, 
and  the  strong  young  men  with  increasing  families  were  seeking  better  and  cheaper 
lands  in  the  State  of  New  York,  and  had  been  for  more  than  thirty  years.

THE   GREATEST  TREASURE. 

"The  value  of  a  child  is  incalculable,"  says  a  Chicago  judge.  "The  child  is  the 
thing  that  makes  the  home  the  unit,  and  the  child  is  the  thing  about  which  every- 
thing revolves." 

James  Brown  [B.  G.  38,  pp.  12,  14],  his  records  and  the  names  of  his  children,  will 
follow  in  this  connection,  with  comments  and  facts  known  personally  to  the  compiler. 

James  Brown  (38),  son  of  Eleazer  (11)  and  Ann  (Pendleton)  Brown, 
b.,  Stonington,  Conn.,  July  1,  1696;  d.,  No.  Stonington,  Conn.,  Feb.  2, 
1750;  m.,  May  5,  17 18,  by  Rev.  James  Noyes,  of  Stonington,  Elizabeth 
Randall,  b.  July  4,  1696;  d.  Aug.  25,  1786,  at  the  ripe  age  of  over  ninety 
years.  Interments  in  Brown  Cemetery.  [For  more  complete  comments, 
see  B.  G.,  p.  14.] 

It  must  be  remembered  that  when  James  Brown  was  b.  the  country 
was  in  a  primitive  state,  almost  a  vast  wilderness.  His  father,  Eleazer, 
with  his  axe,  had  begun  to  let  in  the  sunshine  in  a  few  places,  and  to  stir 
the  virgin  soil  and  scatter  a  little  seed,  making  an  opening  for  future 
settlers.  James  Brown  built  his  house  on  lands  first  set  off  to  his  father, 
Eleazer  (11),  on  the  most  beautiful  situation  of  any  of  the  lands  pur- 
chased by  the  three  Brown  brothers.  This  house  built  by  James  Brown 
was  located  opposite  what  is  now  the  Union  Cemetery.  The  compiler 
remembers  the  old,  old  house  from  1840  to  1845,  which  soon  after  was 
torn  down.  It  was  a  one-story  house,  fronting  south,  with  east  end  front- 
ing the  country  road.  The  house  and  barn  were  built  of  native  lumber, 
sawed  at  the  mill  erected  by  his  father,  and  assisted  by  the  older  son, 
Jonathan  (37),  and  James,  the  subject  of  this  sketch.  The  barn  fell  down 
before  the  house  was  pulled  down.  The  house  contained  but  four  rooms 
on  the  first  floor;  there  might  have  been  an  attic.  The  compiler  was  in 
and  out  of  this  house  during  five  years  of  his  boyhood.  The  house  stood 
on  a  gradual  sloping  plateau,  affording  a  most  picturesque  view  for  miles 
around.  The  land  is  rich  and  fertile.  The  father  of  the  compiler  hired 
the  land  for  a  number  of  years,  and  on  the  same  the  compiler  worked  for 
five  years.  After  the  house  was  removed,  the  well  covered,  and  grounds 
cleared  and  leveled  off,  there  was  not  a  thing  to  show  the  spot  where 
these  illustrious  children  were  born.  In  this  primitive  house,  standing 
on  this  beautiful  location,  the  following  children  were  born.

Joshua  Brown  lived  on  the  James  Brown  homestead  until  the  death 

of  his  mother,  in  1786,  and  his  children  were  all  b.  here.  He  then  removed 

to  a  farm  in  the  southerly  part  of  Stonington,  where  he  built  his  house, 

living  here  until  he  died,  Sept.  26,  1824. 

The  foregoing  is  written  especially  to  show  the  parentage  of  Thankful 
Brown  and  her  Mster  Elizabeth,  and  to  show  the  identical  location  where 
they  were  b.  and  m.  It  is  interesting  to  note  that  Thankful  (Brown) 
Main  named  her  oldest  son,  James,  for  her  father;  and  it  has  been  in- 
teresting to  notice  for  five  succeeding  generations  that  the  name  James 
appears  in  regular  order  among  her  descendants.  This  was  discovered 
when  the  B.  and  AI.  G.  was  written. 

Now  will  follow  the  marriages  of  these  two  sisters  and  their  children, 
being  a  reprint  from  B.  and  AI.  G.  (p.  51).

"There  can  be  no  more  sincere  and  disinterested  friendship  on  earth  than 
that  which  exists  in  the  bosom  of  pa  rents  towards  their  children.  For  their 
happiness  they  are  willing  to  sacrifice  much;  for  them  they  toil  and  struggle; 
for  them  they  live,  and  for  them,  if  need  be,  they  would  die." 

Daniel  Main  (1800),  son  of  Jeremiah  and  Thankful  (Brown)  Main, 
b.  Jan.  26,  1761;  d.  Jan.  30,  1835;  m.,  July  21,  1779,  Grace  Main,  b. 
Apr.  22,  1761;  d.  aged  ninety-five  years;  dau.  of  Timothy  and  Elizabeth 
(Brown)  Main.  Mr.  and  Mrs.  Main  lived  in  the  Main  Settlement  in 
Connecticut  till  their  children  were  all  born,  and  at  least  one,  George, 
married  while  there.  They  came  to  New  York  State  with  an  ox-team  and 
two  horses,  and  remained  for  a  time  at  Petersburg,  Rensselaer  Co. 
George  Main  and  wife  remained  a  year  or  so  there,  at  which  place  their 
son  Jefferson  was  born.  The  family  came  on  westward,  stopping  for 
a  visit  with  Edward  Thurston  and  Abigail  Main  [B.  and  M.  G.  287, 
p.  51],  his  wife,  who  lived  near  Cooperstown,  Otsego  Co.,  N.  Y.  Their 
Their  dau.  Susannah  remained  a  year  or  more  with  her  aunt  Thankful. 
The  family  moved  on,  spending  a  year  in  the  town  of  Plaintield,  then 
located  near  So.  Brookfield,  Madison  Co.,  N.  Y.,  where  Mr.  Main 
purchased  a  farm  of  one  hundred  and  sixty  acres  with  a  frame  house 
thereon,  which  was  uncommon  in  those  days.  This  homestead  was  about 
three  miles  from  Five  Corners,  where  the  church  was  located,  with  Elder 
Simeon  Brown,  Jr.,  founder  and  pastor,  Mr.  Main  owned  one  of  the 
largest  and  strongest  horses  in  the  vicinity,  named  "Old  Sampson," 
which  he  would  mount,  and  ride  to  church  with  his  wife  or  dau.  Later 
his  dau.  Susannah  seemed  quite  willing  to  go,  mounted  on  the  pillion 
behind  her  father.  Mr.  Main  was  chosen  deacon  of  the  church  soon  after 
settling  in  the  Main  homestead,  and  his  wife  and  several  children  became 
devout  members.  Dea.  Daniel  Main  (1800)  was  a  very  well-educated 
man;  he  taught  school  in  Connecticut,  and  also  in  New  York  State,  be- 
in.!^  very  proficient  in  the  prof  ession,  as  some  of  his  descendants  have  been 
also.  While  in  Connecticut  he  often  preached,  but  did  not  preach  much 
after  coming  to  New  York  State.  He  was  Justice  of  the  Peace,  but 
farming  was  his  chief  occupation.  He  was  tall,  rather  slender,  and  a 
man  of  commanding  appearance,  being  a  deep  thinker  he  was  listened 
to  very  attentively,  as  he  also  possessed  a  very  pleasing  voice.

This  meeting-house  is  owned  and  occupied  by  the  Seventh  Day  and  First  Day 
Baptist  Societies.  Organized  in  1798,  with  Elder  Simeon  Brown.  Jr., who  settled  here, 
in  1792,  as  first  pastor.    The  first  deacon  was  Daniel  Main  (291) 


Tombstone  of  Thankful  (Brown)  Main 


THE  BROWN   GENEALOGY 

Mrs.  Main  was  short,  and  rather  fleshy.  For  many  years  she  was 
blind.  She  had  a  severe  attack  of  typhoid  fever,  during  which  she  was 
tenderly  cared  for  by  her  dau.  Susannah,  and  son  Ira  Miner  and  wife. 
After  her  recovery  she  could  read  and  sew  without  even  spectacles,  some 
of  her  handiwork  being  in  existence  now  [191 2]. 

About  one-half  acre  in  the  southeast  corner  of  the  Main  homestead 
was  set  aside  for  burial  purposes  and  known  as  the  Main  Cemetery. 
The  first  one  to  be  buried  there  was  Thankful  (Brown)  Main,  wife  of 
Jeremiah  Main,  who  d.  Mar.  20,  1812,  aged  ninety-five  years.  Her  son 
Deacon  Daniel  and  wife  beside  her,  and  several  in  the  three  following 
generations  rest  there.  In  memory  of  Dea.  Daniel  Main  and  wife  a  re- 
union is  held  yearly.  At  first  it  was  held  on  the  old  homestead,  later  at 
the  homes  of  different  members  of  the  union;  but  usually,  of  late  years, 
at  Summit  Lake,  a  very  quiet  but  picturesque  place  in  the  vicinity  of 
Burlington  Flats,  Otsego  Co.,  N.  Y. 

Children : 

1801.  Daniel  Main,  b.  17S0;  d.  Apr.  18,  1837;  m.  Marvel  York. 

He  was  given  sixty  acres,  a  portion  of  the  old  homestead, 
including  the  Main  Cemetery,  where  he  was  buried.  He 
was  a  very  eccentric  character.  They  had  no  children, 
but  adopted  Dennison  Main,  father  of  Don  Main,  Brook-

d.  Feb.  15,  1833;  son  of  Elder  Simeon  and  Ruth  (York)  Brown.  Burial 
in  the  Brown  Cemetery.  Mr.  Brown  was  a  farmer  and  a  cooper.  Mrs. 
Brown  was  bereft  of  the  love  and  help  of  a  very  kind  husband,  but 
reared  to  noble  manhood  and  womanhood  her  large  family.  Another 
affliction  soon  followed,  when  death  claimed  her  beloved  son  Almon. 
She  was  a  very  quiet,  unassuming  character,  loved  best  by  those  who 
knew  her  most  intimately.  When  her  son's  wife,  Philura,  was  dying,  she 
placed  her  young  babe  in  its  grandmother's  arms,  saying,  "I  give  Henri- 
etta to  you."  Thus  she  proved  a  noble  mother  to  her  also.  A  woman 
often  sought  in  time  of  sickness,  she  filled  her  mission  in  life  full  of  kind 
deeds.  Her  attitude  in  regard  to  temperance  is  best  illustrated  by  the 
following  instance.  She  was  riding  along  one  day  with  her  son  Stephen 
Taylor,  when  they  saw  a  man  lying  intoxicated  by  the  roadside.  She 
turned  to  her  son,  saying,  "I  had  rather  bury  a  son  of  mine  than  see  him 
in  that  condition;  it  would  he  far  easier  for  me"  Her  sons  were  very 
temperate,  not  even  having  the  habit  of  sweet-cider  drinking,  and  only 
one,  the  eldest,  used  tobacco.  Hut  one  son,  Stephen  Taylor,  survives 
her.  Though  past  his  eighty-seventh  birthday  his  mind  is  clear  and  alert; 
and  though  he  is  rather  feeble  physically,  to  him,  mostly,  is  due  the  credit 
of  the  history  penned  of  Dea.  Daniel  Main  and  wife.  Nothing  thus 
written  has  been  fancied  on  the  [tart  of  the  writer,  but  facts  as  related 
by  him.

of  an  unusually  retentive  memory,  he  could  quote  Scripture  as  but  few 
could.  Oneof  his  special  pleasures,  as  his  children  were  growing  up,  was  to 
have  them  read  portions  of  Scripture  at  random,  and  he  would  name  the 
book,  chapter,  and  often  the  verse,  where  found.  His  Bible  was  his  most 
valued  book,  and  not  until  well  advanced  in  years  and  confined  to  the 
house  by  illness  did  he  practise  reading  a  newspaper.  He  was  a  Repub- 
lican.

best  of  her  knowledge.  She  says:  "My  father.  Stephen  Brown  [B.  G., 
p.  142],  deserves  most  of  the  credit,  for  it  is  his  level  head  that  has  been 
my  chief  guide."  She  hopes  that  they  may  do  justice  to  the  loved  ones 
gone  on  to  their  heavenly  reward,  as  well  as  to  those  living.

Note. —  It  appears  from  the  above  that  Eleazer  Brown  was  twice  m. 

Eleazer  Brown  (2003),  son  of  Eleazer  (39)  and  Temperance  (Holmes) 
Brown  [Eleazer  (11),  Thomas],  b.,  at  Stonington,  Conn.,  June  1,  1728; 
d.  July  11,  1795;  buried  in  the  Brown  Cemetery,  No.  Stonington,  Conn.; 
m.,  Oct.  16,  1755,  Anne  Green,  of  Hopkinton,  R.  I.,  b.  1735;  d.  Sept. 
15,  1803.  Elder  Brown  was  the  second  pastor  of  the  First  Baptist  Church, 
of  Stonington  [Pendleton  Hill].  This  was  his  only  pastorate,  extending 
over  a  period  of  twenty-seven  years.  Elder  Brown,  it  is  said,  had  but 
little  education,  but  was  a  man  of  strong  native  powers,  of  vivid  thought 
and  conception,  and  of  a  flowing,  rapid  delivery.  He  was  rightly  esteemed 
one  of  the  most  eminent  preachers  of  his  day.  In  1791,  towards  the  close 
of  his  ministry,  there  came  a  great  outpouring  of  the  Spirit  of  God; 
and  the  seed  faithfully  sown  began  to  bear  much  fruit,  and  at  this  re- 
vival the  church  received  an  accession  of  fifty-two,  making  the  total 
membership  one  hundred  and  fifty-two.  [For  a  full  account,  see  B.  G., 
pp.  551,  552.] 

Elder  Eleazer  Brown's  house  stood  a  few  rods  east  of  the  Brown  Bury- 
ing-ground,  opposite  the  present  parsonage  of  the  Second  Church,  in 
No.  Stonington,  where  the  cellar  is  still  to  be  seen.  This  house  was 
struck  by  lightning  while  Elder  Brown  was  preaching  in  the  near-by 
church.  Two  young  people  were  killed  by  lightning,  one  up  stairs  and 
the  other  down,  while  shutting  windows.  The  compiler's  mother  said 
they  were  engaged  to  be  married.  Another  mother  reported  that  they 
were  John  and  Hulda,  but  it  is  not  certain  about  their  names. 

Children,  b.  at  Stonington:

Anne  (Green)  Brown,  b.,  at  Stonington,  Conn.,  July  4,  1757;  m.  Edith 
Palmer. 

It  is  not  exactly  known  when  Fleazer  Brown  removed  to  the  State 
of  New  York,  but  in  New  York  Land  papers  of  records  of  petitions  for 
and  grants  of  land  are  found  many  familiar  names  around  Brooklield, 
Edmeston,  and  Columbus.  Fleazer  Brown  had  a  certificate  of  purchase 
of  250  acres  Dec.  1,  1790,  for  lot  84,  township  19.  Also  Simeon  Brown, 
Jr.,  lot  Si,  250  acres.  He  settled  in  Brookfield.  [See  B.  G.,  p.  120.] 
Jabish  Brown  had  a  certificate  of  purchase  in  1791,  in  Chenango  Town- 
ship, of  500  acres.  These  three  early  settlers  were  near  relatives,  going 
from  their  home  town,  Stonington,  at  different  times.*  Thus  it  would 
appear  that  Eleazer  Brown  (2012)  settled  at  Brookfield.

Note. —  While  it  is  said  that  Prentice  Brown  (2021)  was  b.  at  Stonington,  I  am 
inclined  to  believe  that  it  was  his  father,  Eleazer  (2012),  who  blazed  the  trail  into 
York  State  when  it  was  comparatively  one  vast  wilderness,  in  the  last  half  of  1700. 
Eleazer  (2012),  with  Simeon  Brown,  Jr.  (275)  [B.  G.,  p.  120],  is  mentioned  as  a  pioneer 
to  York  State  in  this  same  connection  in  1791.  Therefore  I  believe  that  Prentice  Brown 
was  born  in  Madison  Co.,  N.  Y.  Stonington,  Conn.,  at  this  time,  one  hundred  years 
after  the  three  Brown  brothers  made  their  settlement  in  this  wilderness,  had  become 
very  thickly  settled,  and  every  acre  of  available  land  was  under  cultivation,  and  the 
same  spirit  of  adventure  crowded  these  sons  of  Elder  Eleazer  Brown  (2003)  from  their 
home  town,  Stonington,  to  seek  new  and  cheaper  land  and  more  productive  in  the 
west  —  "out  west,"  it  was  then  called. 

It  was  with  much  difficulty  and  long  research  that  the  compiler  located  these  broth- 
ers,—  Eleazer  (2012),  Benjamin  (2016),  and  Luther  (2017), —  for  no  records  are  left 
of  where  such  adventurers  fled  to.

her  father's  family,  and  the  thirteen  children  of  her  grandfather  Eleazer 
Brown  (2110).  Her  memory  of  her  people  is  perfectly  wonderful.  The 
compiler  was  appalled  at  the  vast  amount  of  data  she  carries  in  her 
brain,  but  was  exceedingly  fortunate  to  get  so  many  family  records  and 
historical  events  before  they  were  consigned  to  oblivion.  He  was  cau- 
tioned not  to  say  a  word  about  her,  but  had  it  not  been  for  her  the 
Brown  family  herewith  connected  would  have  been  unhonored  and  un-

Farewell,  my  dear  wife,  I  leave  to  your  care 
Two  jewels  more  precious  than  diamonds  rare. 
Oh,  train  them  for  Heaven  to  meet  me  on  high, 
And  come  with  them,  too,  for  sure  you  must  die! 
Farewell,  my  dear  children,  how  hard  thus  to  part; 
To  have  met  you  again  would  bring  joy  to  my  heart. 
Oh,  meet  me  in  Heaven!    We  '11  part  nevermore, 
As  we  roam  the  fair  fields  of  eternity's  shore.

THE  BROWN  GENEALOGY 

THE   MUSIC   OF   SOLITUDE. 

By  Margaret  E.  LaMont,  Alfred,  N.  Y. 

I  heard  the  twittering  of  happy  birds. 

The  lapping  of  the  wavelets  on  the  shore; 
I  heard  the  singing  of  the  summer  wind, 

The  swaying  of  the  pine  trees  —  and  no  more. 

And  yet  't  was  not  alone  the  song  of  bird; 

Nor  yet  of  wave,  nor  wind,  nor  swaying  pine; 
But  something  in  them,  through  them,  that  I  heard, — 

A  breathing  echo  of  a  song  divine.

HOW  ALPHEUS  BROWN  AND  HIS  RECORDS  WERE  FOUND. 

In  my  first  genealogy  I  had  only  the  name  of  Alpheus  Brown  and  the 
fact  that  he  went  West. 

In  191 1  I  saw  the  name  of  Edwin  J.  Brown,  Oneida,  N.  Y.,  where  he 
had  been  chosen  president  of  the  historical  society.  As  his  name  was  not 
in  my  first  genealogy,  when  I  had  so  many  Browns  in  Madison  County, 
I  at  once  wrote  Mr.  Brown,  to  get  his  ancestry.  He  wrote  me  that  his 
great-grandfather  was  Alpheus  Brown,  and  that  he  lived  at  a  place  in 
Stonington,  Conn.,  called  Pawcatuck  Bridge  [which  is  Westerly,  R.  I.]. 
He  said  he  never  could  connect  himself  with  the  numerous  Browns  in 
Madison  County.  He  said  also  that  his  grandfather's  name  was  Clark. 
I  went  to  the  Westerly  Town  Records  and  found  that  Alpheus  Brown, 
late  of  Stonington,  m.  Hannah  Burdick,  of  Hopkinton,  R.  I.  The  records 
from  Hopkinton  revealed  the  birth  of  Clark  Brown,  his  grandfather. 

I  wrote  Mr.  Brown  of  Oneida  that  the  reason  he  could  not  connect 
himself  with  the  numerous  Browns  of  Madison  County  was  that  he  had 
lost  the  key.  I  sent  him  the  connecting  links  by  which  he  was  related 
to  them.  He  then  gave  me  the  records  of  Clark  Brown,  after  his  birth 
was  found  in  Hopkinton,  down  to  the  present  time  [191 2]. 

It  was  then  supposed  that  Clark  was  an  only  child;  but  in  1914  six 
other  children  were  found,  whose  records  will  follow  in  regular  order.

Hannah  Brown  (1314a),  the  second  child  of  Alpheus  (1286)  and 
Hannah  (Burdick)  Brown  [Reuben  (1258),  Humphrey  (26),  Thomas 
(2),  Thomas],  b.,  at  Hopkinton,  R.  I.,  Oct.  15,  1798;  m.,  at  Hopkinton, 
in  1813,  Ezra  Babcock,  b.,  at  Hopkinton,  Oct.  18,  1794;  d.,  at  Brookfield, 
N.  Y.,  Nov.  9,  1879;  son  of  Oliver,  3d,  and  Tracy  (Maxson)  Babcock. 
When  Ezra  became  of  age  he  sold  the  farm  in  Leyden,  Mass.,  for  $4,000. 
He  was  a  good  scholar,  a  beautiful  writer,  a  school-teacher,  a  musician, 
and  played  the  violin  after  he  was  seventy-five  years  of  age,  for  the 
amusement  of  the  family.  Some  time  in  18 15  they  removed  to  Hcmer, 
N.  Y.,  and  he,  with  his  brother  Nathan,  kept  a  dry-goods  store.  He  then 
went  to  Utica,  N.  Y.,  and  learned  the  carpenter's  trade  and  became  a 
boss  workman.  He  built  the  first  Methodist  Church  in  Brookfield,  also 
the  Academy,  where  Lodowick  C.  York  was  principal.  Mrs.  Jennings 
(2407),  in  her  girlhood,  attended  this  Academy  until  she  began  to  teach 
as  assistant  for  L.  C.  York  [see  B.  G.,  p.  1S8].  Mr.  Babcock  then  bought 
a  beautiful  farm  of  over  two  hundred  acres,  where  he  settled  for  the 
rest  of  his  life.  Their  dau.  Cynthia  had  the  care  of  her  parents  for  many 
years,  at  their  home  in  Brookfield,  until  their  death.  From  the  Babcock 
Genealogy  (p.  97)  is  given  the  following  record: 

"Oliver  Babcock,  3d,  son  of  Oliver,  Jr.,  and  Patience  (Pendleton)  Bab- 
cock, b.,  at  Hopkinton,  R.  I.,  June  28,  1746;  d.,  at  Leyden,  Mass.,  Sept. 
11,  1806  or  1809;  m.,  July  18,  1767,  Tracy,  dau.  of  Samuel  and  Ruth 
(Rogers)  Maxson,  b.  Feb.  13,  1754;  d.  at  Leonardsville,  N.  Y. 

THE  WILL. 

"The  will  of  Oliver  Babcock,  3d,  dated  at  Leyden,  Mass.,  Sept.  5, 
1806,  mentions  his  wife,  Tracy,  and  his  seven  sons  and  three  daughters,

THE  BROWN  GENEALOGY 

the  names  given  in  order  of  ages.  His  homestead  farm  at  Leyden,  con- 
taining one  hundred  and  sixty  acres,  he  gave  to  his  wife  during  her  life, 
and  at  her  death  to  his  youngest  son,  Ezra.  His  sons  Ethan,  Oliver,  and 
Joseph  had  each  previously  received  their  shares.  On  the  same  day  the 
will  was  signed,  he  deeded  to  each  of  his  sons  Phineas  and  Nathan  a 
tract  of  land.  To  his  son  Hezekiah  he  gave  a  farm  of  two  hundred  acres 
lying  in  Brookfield,  N.  V.  To  each  of  his  three  daughters,  Lois,  Patty 
or  Martha,  and  Susan,  he  gave  $200." 

Children  of  Hannah  Brown  and  Ezra  Babcock: 

2399.  Laura  T.  Babcock,  b.,  at  Hopkinton,  R.  I.,  1S15;  m.  Benja- 

min Gorton,  who  d.  Apr.,  1S45;  she  d.  in  1845,  aged  thirty 
years.  They  had  one  dau.,  Laura  Plasentia  Gorton.  In 
earh'  womanhood  she  m.  Jerome  Murphy,  of  Rochester, 
N.  Y.  They  continued  to  reside  here  for  a  number  of 
years,  or  until  Mr.  Murphy  entered  the  ministry,  when 
they  took  up  their  residence  in  the  western  part  of  the 
State.  Mr.  Murphy  d.  in  1878.  They  had  one  dau.,  Mrs. 
C.H.  Paine,  with  whom  Mrs.  Murphy  resided  at  the  time  of 
her  death.  Laura  T.  (Babcock)  Gorton  had  serious  trouble 
with  one  of  her  eyes,  which  finally,  after  an  operation, 
caused  her  death.  This  cast  deep  gloom  over  the  parental 
home,  and  made  a  profound  impression  on  her  younger 
sister,  Cynthia,  as  she  recalls  her  death.  Mr.  Gorton  was 
certainly  one  of  the  best  of  men  and  a  pillar  in  the  Metho- 
dist Church.

Babcock,  b.,  at  Homer,  N.  Y.,  Dec.  21,  1816;  d.,  at  New  Berlin,  N.  Y., 
June  20,  1S79;  m.,  at  Brookfield,  N.  Y.,  Jan.  1,  1840,  Albert  W.  Hills, 
b.,  at  Ira,  Vt.,  Oct.  17,  1810;  d.,  at  New  Berlin,  Mar.  10,  1894;  son  of 
Daniel  Hills,  of  New  Berlin,  and  Sally  Hutchins.  Mr.  Hills  was  a  car- 
penter and  farmer.  He  was  a  strong  Republican,  and  a  good  citizen, 
and  was  greatly  missed  when  he  died.  He  never  professed  religion,  but 
always  gave  to  the  church  just  the  same  as  he  would  if  he  had  been  a 
member.  He  had  the  old  farm  homestead,  and  it  is  the  home  of  his  old- 
est son,  Herbert.  Roxie  was  an  active  member  of  the  Baptist  Church,  a 
teacher  of  the  Bible-class  for  fifteen  consecutive  years,  and  every  one  of 
the  class  were  Christians.  She  used  to  live,  when  young,  with  her  Grand- 
mother Brown,  and  kept  the  seventh  day.  Both  grandfathers  kept  the 
seventh  day.  Many  of  the  people  in  Hopkinton,  R.  L,  at  that  time,  as 
now,  keep  the  seventh  day.  The  mother  church  of  the  Seventh  Day 
people  is  located  here,  and  in  1902  celebrated  the  two-hundredth  anni- 
versary of  their  organization.  The  names  of  the  two  grandfathers  here 
mentioned  were  Alpheus  Brown  and  Oliver  Babcock.  Roxie  kept  Sunday 
after  her  marriage,  for  there  was  no  Seventh-Day  Church  in  that  place.

after  his  marriage  he  was  able  to  buy  a  farm  for  which  he  paid  six  thou- 
sand  dollars.  His  farm  lands  increased  in  value  until  he  was  offered 
twenty  thousand  dollars.  He  went  into  the  raising  and  selling  of  hops, 
and  was  very  prosperous  in  his  business.

he  and  his  wife  were  members  of  the  Methodist  Episcopal  Church.  Mrs.

Hannah  (2408),  where  she  still  lives  [1914].  Mrs.  Jennings  was  untiring 
in  her  efforts  in  having  her  father's,  mother's,  brothers',  and  sisters' 
records  brought  to  completeness  and  placed  on  the  pages  of  history.  Her

excellent  memory  of  all  the  families  enabled  the  compiler  to  obtain 
records  which  in  a  short  time  would  have  been  wholly  lost.  If  any  mem- 
bers of  this  family  do  not  have  a  place  in  these  records  it  will  not  be  the 
fault  of  Mrs.  Jennings.  In  her  girlhood  she  had  the  advantages  of  an 
academic  education,  and  afterwards  she  became  a  proficient  teacher. 
Her  Utters  written  to  the  compiler  were  in  good  language,  evincing  a 
well-trained  mind.  It  was  very  difficult  to  locate  any  one  that  could 
tell  what  had  become  of  Hannah  Brown  (1314a),  the  oldest  dau.  of 
Alpheus  and  Hannah  (Burdick)  Brown,  until  Mrs.  Jennings  was  located.

was  a  real  Christian,  of  a  sunny,  cheerful  kind,  mirrored 
by  every  feature  of  her  lovely  and  loving  nature.  She  was 
called  early,  as  life  was  unfolding,  to  her  celestial  home.

husband,  and  very  kind  and  helpful  to  everybody.  He  was  buried 
in  New  Berlin.  His  father  and  mother  lived  and  died  in  Sherburne,

and  was  a  good  scholar.  She  taught  school  in  Brookfield,  where  she 
was  educated.  She  is  a  member  of  the  Methodist  Church.  She  now

THE  BROWN  GENEALOGY 

GENEALOGICAL    RECORD   OF    JOHN    BROWN,    SOX    OF   ALPHEUS    BROWN 

(  [286),   AND   Dl  SCENDANTS. 
By  Ed  M.  Brown. 

K.NOXVILLE,  TeNN.,  May,  1914. 

To  Tin   ( .i\i  ux>GiST. 
Dear  Mr.  Broun:  — 

Your  ultimatum  that  we  should  compile  the  data  for  the  genealogical  record  of  our 
grandfather,  John  Brown,  and  descendants,  was  as  gratefully  received  as  our  knowl- 
edge of  our  own  unworthiness  is  recognized.  We  also  are  aware  of  the  fact  that  a 
work  of  the  character  in  which  you  have  been  so  many  years  engaged  and  upon  which 
you  bave  spent  so  much  time  and  expended  so  much  money  must  be  almost  in  its 
entirety  a  work  of  love  of  kindred.  We  realize  we  must  refrain  from  approaching  the 
semblance  of  bipgraphy,  and  less  of  autobiography,  and  in  as  concise  manner  as  pos- 
sible give  you  a  brief  epitome  of  the  milestones  on  the  journey  of  each  figure  in  this 
drama  called  life.  We  have  gone  back  in  thought  to  those  days  of  youth  when  and 
where  life  first  appeared  to  be  real.  Where  the  "old  trout  brook,"  commencing  in  a 
tiny  spring,  grew  in  volume  by  distance  to  nourish  resources  for  the  home  of  the 
little  speckled  beauty  whose  attainment  by  strategy  was  our  acme  of  triumph.  Then 
home,  past  grandfather's,  in  the  expectant  halo  of  "See  the  conquering  hero  comes!" 

Then  comes  the  picture  of  grandfather  and  his  five  sons,  in  the  zenith  of  manhood, 
with  their  affinities,  sitting  down  to  a  feast  prepared  by  our  dear  old  grandmother  in 
recognition  of  some  anniversary  of  an  epoch  in  our  lives. 

These  royal  dinners  continued  as  the  years  sped  by,  with  additional  chairs  around 
that  festal  board  for  the  grandchildren,  who  were  never  consigned  to  the  "second 
table"  by  a  grandmother  like  ours. 

Then  after  the  feast,  whilst  grandmother  was  directing  the  usual  after-dinner 
ceremonies,  assisted  by  the  daughters  she  had  acquired  by  a  treaty  of  annexation 
through  the  fidelity  of  her  sons,  the  sons  would  assume  to  engage  in  a  wrestling-match 
with  our  grandfather,  who  would  grasp  each  with  the  fervor  of  undiminished  manhood, 
and  assert  that  whenever  he  had  a  boy  who  could  put  his  back  to  the  floor  he  was  ready 
to  pass  away.  We  have  related  the  above  as  construing  the  spirit  of  filial  devotion 
which  reigned  at  the  time  we  take  up  our  branch  of  the  family  tree.  If  we  grow  apart. 
the  spirit  is  not  of  him  or  her  with  whom  we  commence  our  data. 

A  brief  synopsis  of  the  lives  of  those  who  followed  will  be  found  appended  herewith, 
to  accord  with  the  information  transmitted  to  us  in  spirit  of  fraternity  and  affection 
by  those  who  appreciate  your  work. 

Craving  the  indulgence  of  those  of  whom  we  have  related,  in  spirit  of  loyalty  and 
affection,  and  for  yourself,  in  the  language  of  Rip  Van  Winkle,  who  slept  for  twenty 
years,  to  awaken  with  as  dim  a  vision  of  genealogy  as  ourselves,  if  il  were  not  for  you, 
'•  May  you  live  long  ami  prosper."  Sincerely  yours, 

E.  M.  B. 

John  Brown  (1314c),  son  of  Alpheus  (1286)  and  Hannah  (Burdick) 
Brown  [Reuben  (1258),  Humphrey  (26),  Thomas  (2),  Thomas],  b.,  at 
Hopkinton,  R.  I.,  in  1804;  d.,  at  Kllisburg,  X.  V.,  1S74;  m.  Priscilla

Tombstones  of  Alpheus  Brown  vnd  Wife 
and  ('mm  \i.\  James  Lewis  and  Wife 


THE  BROWN  GENEALOGY 

Capt.  James  Lewis  and  Phebe,  his  wife.  The  writer  is  credibly  informed 
that  the  female  descendants  of  Capt.  James  Lewis,  who  d.  May  18, 
1823,  aged  sixty-nine  years,  and  is  buried  with  his  wife,  who  d.  June  26, 
1853,  aged  ninety-one  years,  in  the  cemetery  at  Ellisburg,  are  eligible 
for  membership  in  the  D.  A.  R.  Mr.  Brown  became  a  prominent  local 
figure  by  the  impressions  he  created  by  his  sturdy  manhood,  sterling 
good  sense,  and  loyalty  in  his  friendships.  Always  genial,  his  utter- 
ances were  terse  and  practical,  coupled  with  good  humor.  His  mental 
world  was  radiant  with  affection  for  all  his  kindred,  who  confided  in 
him  for  sympathy  or  comradeship.  The  affection  between  himself  and 
his  wife  was  the  embodiment  of  love  in  its  fullest  fruition.  He  was  at 
one  time  in  the  hotel  business,  but  this  lacking  his  conception  of  a 
home,  he  retired  to  a  farm,  where  he  spent  the  remainder  of  his  days  in 
an  enjoyment  which  was  more  congenial  to  his  nature.  He  was  an 
unswerving  Democrat  of  the  old  school,  and  connected  with  the  United 
States  Customs  Service  during  President  Buchanan's  administration.

1902;  dau.  of  Cyrus  and  Sarah  Sophia  (Field)  Hubbard,  of  Henderson. 
Mr.  Brown  was  a  man  of  gentle  disposition,  full  of  love  for  his  family. 
Deciding  that  the  best  place  for  a  young  man  with  a  growing  family  was 
in  the  new  West,  he  left  his  home  in  Ellisburg,  N.  Y.,  and  was  on  the 
first  boat  that  attempted  to  go  through  the  Welland  Canal.  The  canal 
was  too  narrow,  and  the  boat  stuck  fast.  The  captain  was  so  chagrined 
at  the  failure  of  his  trip  that  he  committed  suicide,  and  Robert  and  his 
family  returned  to  their  home  in  Ellisburg,  staying  until  1857,  when  he 
migrated  to  that  long-cherished  haven,  Wisconsin,  which  State  and 
Minnesota  were  his  home  until  his  death.

About  1700  or  1S00  .Mr.  Dixon  went  to  Enfield,  Conn.,  where  he  taught  school, 
but  gave  up  teaching  and  studied  law.  He  represented  Enfield  in  the  General  As- 
sembly for  nine  terms.  He  was  Town  Clerk  from  1832  to  1839  inclusive.  Wm.  Dixon 
was  married,  at  Enfield,  Oct.  1  ^,  iSor,  to  Mary,  dau.  of  Simeon  Field,  M.D.,  of  En- 
field.— Extract  from  the  "Harvey  Book,"  by  Oscar  Jewell  Hariey,  pp.  ^5.9,  454. 

Mr.  Dixon  was  fitted  for  college  at  the  Plainfield  Academy,  the  same 
as  his  father,  and  in  the  autumn  of  1795,  shortly  before  his  twenty-first 
birthday,  entered  the  Rhode  Island  College  [since  1802,  Brown  Uni- 
versity], Providence.  He  was  graduated  with  honors  in  1799,  receiving 
the  degree  of  A.B.  Soon  after,  he  became  a  student  of  law  at  Norwich, 
Conn.  In  1S01  he  wras  admitted  to  the  bar,  and  immediately  entered 
upon  the  practice  of  his  profession  in  New  London  Co.,  Conn. 

In  1S02  he  removed  to  the  village  of  Westerly,  Washington  Co., 
R.  I.,  where  he  located,  and  was  admitted  to  the  bar.  He  continued  to 
pursue  his  professional  labors  in  Connecticut  as  well  as  in  Rhode  Island, 
and  in  the  course  of  a  few  years  had  an  extensive  and  remunerative 
practice  in  both  States. 

In  1813,  and  also  for  several  successive  years,  he  wras  chosen  to  repre- 
sent Westerly  in  the  General  Assembly.  In  1800  the  Washington  Bank 
of  Westerly  was  established,  and  in  1829  Mr.  Dixon,  who  for  several 
years  was  a  member  of  the  Board  of  Directors  of  the  bank,  was  elected 
its  president.  He  was  continued  in  this  office  until  his  death.  During  a 
number  of  years  he  held  the  rank  of  Colonel  in  the  militia  of  Rhode 
island. 

In  Oct.,  1838,  without  any  solicitation  or  effort  on  his  part,  Colonel 
Dixon  was  elected,  by  the  Rhode  Island  Legislature,  to  represent  the 
State  as  one  of  its  Senators  in  the  Congress  of  the  United  States,  for  a 
term  of  six  years,  beginning  Mar.  4,  1839.  During  his  service  in  tin'  Sen- 
ate the  following  named  were  some  of  the  eminent  and  able  men  who 
were  members  of  that  body:  John  C.  Calhoun,  of  So.  Carolina,  Rufus 
Choate,  of  Massachusetts,  Richard  H.  Bayard,  of  Delaware,  Henry 
Clay,  of  Kentucky,  James  Buchanan,  of  Pennsylvania,  Thomas  H. 
Benton,  of  Missouri,  Silas  Wright,  of  New  York,  and  Daniel  Webster, 
of  Massachusetts. 

Mr.  Dixon  passed  away,  as  before  stated,  during  the  second  session  of 
the  Twenty-seventh  Congress.  Many  eloquent  tributes  of  respect  to  his 
..  emory  were  given  by  members  of  the  Senate.

This  Thomas  Brown  and  Sarah  Edwards  who  were  witnesses  to  the 
ceremony  were  probably  her  younger  brother  Thomas  (22)  and  her 
younger  sister  Sarah  (21).  This  union  explains  where  the  Edwards  and 
Maine  ancestors  of  the  Jabish  Main  family  found  the  name  Collins  for 
a  first  name.  [See  B.  and  M.  G.  555,  p.  130.]  Dr.  C.  Wesley  Hale  [B.  and 
M.  G.,  p.  135]  has  the  statement  in  the  handwriting  of  his  great-grand- 
mother Freelove  (Edwards)  Maine,  that  Jerusha  Brown  (20)  was  the 
dau.  of  Thomas  Brown  (2).  In  view  of  the  above  facts  and  many  others, 
there  seems  to  be  no  doubt  of  the  identity  of  the  particular  parties  to 
this  union.

THE  UTTER  FAMILY. 

Nicholas1  Utter,  the  immigrant,  was  b.  about  1637.  From  1630  to 
1640  there  was  a  large  influx  of  people  from  England  to  New  England, 
landing  at  Lynn,  Salem,  and  Newbury,  Mass.  Doubtless  the  parents  of 
Nicholas  Utter  were  among  these  immigrants.  Nicholas  Utter  was  b. 
about  1637.  The  precise  time  and  place  is  not  of  record.  There  are  tra- 
ditions that  che  native  country  of  the  Utter  family  was  Sweden;  one, 
that  they  came  from  Holland;  another  claims  the  name  should  be  Von 
Utter.  But  what  is  correct  is  not  yet  ascertained.  It  is  found  that  he 
lived  in  Westerly,  R.  I.,  and  Stonington,  Conn.    He  was  twice  m.    The 

name  of  his  first  wife  was  Deborah;  the  second  wife  was  Elizabeth , 

a  widow,  who  d.  after  1722.  He  d.  before  1723.

The  Land  Evidence  Books  of  the  Town  of  Westerly,  R-  I.,  show, 
by  the  several  deeds  of  record,  and  transfers  to  several  people,  that 
Nicholas  Utter  and  his  four  sons  were  landholders  in  Westerly.  Deeds 
in  some  instances  were  signed  by  their  marks,  by  which  it  must  not  be 
inferred  they  could  not  write,  but  that  sickness,  infirmity,  and  old  age 
were  the  cause.  For  earlier  transactions  their  signatures  are  given.  In 
Book  3,  p.  20,  Nicholas  Utter  is  mentioned  as  owning  land  in  Westerly, 
R.  I.,  in  July  "ye  13  day  1719-"  Also,  Nicholas  Utter,  in  Book  3,  Land

years  of  age  and  one  under.  In  the  census  of  1790  are  found  the  follow- 
ing names:  Isaac,  John,  Joseph,  Josiah,  Samuel,  Solomon,  William,  and 
James.  The  names  of  girls  were  not  given.  Two  children  were  of  special 
record, —  John  and  William.  John  Utter's  records  are  plainly  written 
in  his  family  Bible,  now  in  possession  of  his  granddau.,  Mrs.  Emma 
Albertine  (Utter)  Maxson,  of  Westerly.

b.  Oct.  8,  1817;  d.,  at  Whitesborough,  Aug.  8,  1882;  dau.  of  Charles  and 
Martha  (Gardner)  Babcock.  Mrs.  Utter  had  been  an  invalid  for  periods 
lasting  two  or  three  years.  Mr.  Utter  attended  what  is  known  as  the 
"Old  Red  Schoolhouse,"  at  Unadilla  Forks,  Otsego  Co.,  N.  Y.  After 
graduating  from  this  school  he  went  to  Utica,  N.  Y.,  for  a  time.  At  the 
age  of  nineteen  he  went  to  Cazenovia,  N.  Y.,  and  attended  school  there 
for  a  time.  He  then  went  to  Norwich,  Chenango  Co.,  N.  Y.,  and  clerked 
for  Chapman  &  Thorp,  general  merchants.  Mr.  Thorp's  daughter  was 
the  wife  of  Ole  Bull,  the  celebrated  violinist.  Mr.  Utter,  for  a  while, 
conducted  a  store  of  general  merchandise  on  his  own  account  at  Unadilla 
Forks,  and  later  at  So.  Brookfield,  N.  Y.  He  soon  tired  of  this  and  took 
up  civil  engineering,  for  which  he  had  a  great  liking  and  with  which  he

had  in  a  degree  familiarized  himself.  He  associated  himself  with  Nelson 
J.  Beach  in  the  construction  of  the  Black  River  Canal.  Mr.  Beach  was 
subsequently  made  vice-president  of  the  Hudson  River  R.  R.  Co.,  and 
he  took  Mr.  Utter  with  him,  securing  for  him  the  position  of  chief  engi- 
neer, with  headquarters  at  New  York  City.  When  the  New  York  Cen- 
tral Railroad  was  consolidated  with  the  Hudson  River  Road,  Mr.  Utter 
was  continued  in  the  employ  of  the  Vanderbilts,  and  placed  in  charge  of 
the  maps  of  the  entire  system.  This  collection  of  maps,  as  arranged  by 
Mr.  Utter,  was  perfect.  He  knew  every  piece  of  property  owned  by  the 
Central  Company,  and  could  give  the  location,  extent,  etc.,  without 
reference  to  maps.  He  was  a  valuable  assistant  to  counsel  in  actions  in 
which  the  company  was  involved.  He  was  recognized  as  the  best-posted 
man  in  that  particular  in  the  employ  of  the  road.  Mr.  Utter  was  con- 
tinued in  this  capacity  until  1886,  when  his  health  became  impaired,  he 
being  attacked  with  nervous  prostration.  The  Central  Company  con- 
tinued his  name  on  the  pay-roll  during  his  entire  illness.

keepsie,  N.  Y.,  and  in  1867  the  family  removed  to  Bridge- 
water.  She  leaves  many  friends,  who  will  remember  her

soon  became  the  leading  recognized  organ  of  the  Seventh-Day  Baptist 
denomination.  For  more  than  twenty-five  years  he  edited  and  published 
that  paper,  and  had  the  oversight  of  the  monthly  and  quarterly  period- 
icals and  books  and  reports  of  various  kinds  published  by  that  denomina- 
tion. In  1859  he  became  interested  in  the  Narragansett  Weekly,  a  paper 
published  in  Westerly,  and  removed  with  his  family,  in  January,  1862, 
to  Westerly.  He  and  his  brother  John  Herbert  Utter  joined  in  the  pub- 
lication of  that  paper.  On  the  death  of  J.  Herbert  Utter,  in  1SS6,  Mr. 
George  B.  Utter  assumed  the  whole  responsibility  of  that  paper.  He  was  a 
man  of  rare  abilities,  unassuming,  and  far-sighted;  his  counsel  was  sought 
by  people  both  far  and  near  for  his  judgment  in  financial  and  other 
matter-.  He  had  prepared  for  the  ministry  and  was  ordained,  but  im- 
portant duties  with  which  he  was  connected  prevented  his  becoming

Church,  at  Westerly.  Mr.  Utter  received  his  early  education  in  West- 
erly, where  he  came  with  his  parents  in  [861,  after  which  he  spent  two 
years  in  Alfred  Academy,  Alfred.  N.  Y.  He  then  returned  to  Westerly, 
and  two  more  years  were  devoted  to  the  pursuance  of  his  course  of  in- 
struction in  the  Westerly  High  School.  He  then  entered  Amherst  Col- 
lege, Amherst,   Mass.,  from  which  he  was  graduated  with  the  class  of 

362 


THE  BROWN  GENEALOGY 

1877.  Before  his  collegiate  career  Mr.  Utter  learned  the  printer's  trade, 
and  after  his  graduation  he  became  associated  with  his  father,  George  B., 
and  his  uncle,  J.  Herbert,  Utter  in  publishing  the  Narragansett  Weekly. 
On  the  death  of  his  uncle,  in  1SS6,  he  was  taken  into  the  firm;  and  on 
the  death  of  his  father,  in  1S92,  he  became  sole  proprietor  of  the  paper. 
Through  his  efforts  the  Westerly  Daily  Sun  was  started,  the  first  issue 
appearing  on  Aug.  7,  1893.  Mr.  Utter  was  engaged  in  public  life  for  more 
than  thirty  years,  first  serving  on  the  School  Board  of  the  town  of  West- 
erly, with  which  he  was  long  identified.  His  public  career  was  com- 
menced in  1883,  and  for  two  years  he  was  on  the  staff  of  Gov.  Augustus 
O.  Bourn.  Unassuming  to  an  unusual  degree,  he  was  nevertheless  a 
capable  public  officer  in  all  the  important  public  places  he  was  called 
upon  to  fill.  He  was  Secretary  of  State  from  1891  to  1894,  being  com- 
pelled to  retire  because  of  increasing  business  demands  upon  him.  He 
served  in  succession  as  a  member  of  both  branches  of  the  Legislature, 
as  Speaker  of  the  House,  Lieutenant-Governor,  and  Governor,  and 
finally  as  Representative  to  Congress.  He  received  the  unanimous  nom- 
ination of  his  party  for  a  second  term  in  Congress,  and  would  undoubt- 
edly have  been  re-elected  had  his  life  been  spared  —  his  death  occur- 
ring only  two  days  before  the  election,  Nov.  5,  191 2.  If  he  had  sur- 
vived, it  is  probable  that  the  doors  of  the  United  States  Senate  would 
have  opened  to  him. 

He  was  always  an  active  church  worker,  and  devoted  a  considerable 
portion  of  his  time  to  the  Young  Men's  Christian  Associations  through- 
out the  Eastern  States,  being  a  member  of  the  Y.  M.  C.  A.  Executive 
Committee  for  Massachusetts  and  Rhode  Island.  He  was  made  a 
deacon  of  the  Seventh-Day  Baptist  Church  of  Westerly  in  1894,  and 
for  twenty  years  acted  as  superintendent  of  the  Sabbath-school.  For 
fifteen  years  he  was  treasurer  of  the  Missionary  Society  of  the  Seventh- 
Day  Baptist  denomination. 

A  striking  proof  of  the  impression  he  made  at  Washington  in  the 
short  period  that  was  vouchsafed  to  him  there  may  be  found  in  the 
Congressional  Record  of  June  17,  191 2.  Mr.  Richardson,  of  Alabama, 
the  Democratic  Chairman  of  the  Committee  on  Pensions,  paid  the  fol- 
lowing exceptional  tribute  to  him  in  an  address  before  the  House: 

"Mr.  Speaker,  I  regret  very  much  indeed  that  a  very  distinguished 
member  of  this  House,  a  member  of  the  Pension  Committee,  and, 
in  my  opinion,  justly  and  worthily  classed  among  the  ablest  lawyers  on 
the  floor  of  this  House,  from  the  State  of  Rhode  Island,  Mr.  Utter,  is 
not  present."

THE   BROWN   GENEALOGY 

This  is  the  tribute  of  an  experienced  Democratic  legislator  to  a  Re- 
publican serving  his  first  term,  and  it  is  rendered  the  more  striking 
by  the  fact  that  Air.  Utter  was  not  a  member  of  the  bar.  iff.  Utter 
was  more  than  a  politician  --he  was  a  statesman.  He  spoke  through- 
out this  part  of  the  country  in  behalf  of  high  causes,  and  was  gaining  a 
continually  wider  reputation  as  a  master  of  the  art  of  easy  and  effect- 
ive address. 

The  State  is  poorer  for  his  death.  It  is  no  exaggeration  to  say  that 
Rhode  Island  mourns  for  George  Utter,  as  he  was  familiarly  and  affec- 
tionately known.  It  saw  in  him  the  best  type  of  public  servant, —  effi- 
cient, modest,  and  industrious;  a  man  of  high  ideals,  blameless  private 
life,  instinctive  friendliness,  and  stout  convictions. 

"'Though  modest,  on  his  unembarrassed  brow, 
Nature  had  written  'gentleman.'  " 

The  following  is  an  extract  from  the  Memorial  Address  of  Senator 
Wetmore,   of  Rhode  Island,  at  Washington,   Feb.    22,    1913: 

"My  acquaintance  with  Mr.  Utter  extended  over  a  period  of  many 
years,   and   I   held  him  in  the  greatest   esteem. 

*'He  had  a  high  standard  of  political  and  civic  conduct,  which  he  ex- 
emplified in  his  life. 

"He  was  an  orator  of  ability,  always  ready  to  give  this  gift  of  his  to 
the  Nation  and  his  State;  and  it  may  be  truly  said  his  life  was  short- 
ened by  complying  with  the  many  demands  of  this  nature  made  upon 
him. 

"His  personality  was  attractive  and  his  disposition  lovable. 

"The  world  is  better  for  his  life."
